    The Women's Empowerment Farmer Business School (WE-FBS) is a gender transformative approach that aims to promote gender equality and rural women’s economic empowerment in agriculture, food security and nutrition, while increasing small-scale producers’ business profitability. It seeks to reinforce the capacities of female and male farmers to create profitable agricultural enterprises and, at the same time, transform gender relations in households, communities, and markets. This roll-up features key information about the WE-FBS approach implemented in Cambodia by FAO together with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and the Ministry of Women's Affairs. Through a gender-focused perspective, the approach prompts men and women to reflect critically on their roles, resources, and activities in farming, and to develop strategies that are needed to maximize their commercial potential.

    In Egypt, the sugar beet crop is planted in August and September and harvested in March and April. Most sugar beets are grown by independent farmers who contract sales directly with factories. Some sugar beets are also cultivated on leased land operated by privately owned factories. Cultivation is normally done by men in the large lands but in some areas with smaller lands, women support the household in cultivation. Farmer Field Schools (FFS) is an interactive and participatory learning by doing approach. FFS aim to improve farmers’ livelihoods and recognize their role as innovators and guardians of natural environments. This document shows the results of a sugar beet farmer field school for women in El-Minya.
