    This Success Story highlights major aspects of support and technical assistance that the FAO-Led EU-funded UN-joint Programme provided to mobilise, empower, build capacity, and create interest among rural women to take a leading role in the cocoa value chain in East Sepik Province in Papua New Guinea. This publication focuses on the gender and cocoa components of this EU-funded Programme, its partnership with the Provincial Cocoa Board and Department of Agriculture and Livestock, and the joint endeavour to have women efforts and works recognised truly by male-dominant farming groups. The publication also sheds light on how the Programme supports and equipped the women with the requisite skills, knowledge, inputs, and tools to secure their fair participation in cocoa production and how this achievement contributes to sustainable value chain development in the area.
