    Promoting gender equality across the policy and programme framework of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is crucial for the Organization to realize its mandate to eradicate poverty and eliminate hunger and malnutrition. Across the Asia-Pacific region, women are well recognized as important contributors to food production and all other aspects of food systems. However, their lives and livelihoods are being affected in unprecedented ways by persistent social and gender inequalities, climate change and the current COVID-19 pandemic. The Regional Gender Strategy and Action Plan 2022–2025 for Asia and the Pacific translates FAO’s corporate Policy on Gender Equality 2020-2030 and gender action plan into an actionable agenda and presents the strategic and programme framework for FAO’s gender-related work in the region. The main objectives of the Regional Gender Strategy and Action Plan are to: i) identify and respond to regional trends and challenges that affect women’s equal and meaningful participation in the sectors of agriculture, forestry, livestock and fisheries; ii) mainstream gender perspectives in the regional priorities; iii) establish regional focus areas that will enable gender equality and women’s empowerment across agriculture, forestry, livestock, aquaculture and fisheries sectors; and iv) respond to new and emerging challenges and needs to build back gender-sensitive and -resilient lives and livelihoods. The strategy and action plan includes the two-year action plan for the region and the action and outreach plan which shows how FAO intends to reach out to different stakeholders and partners through various activities.

    Developing gender-sensitive value chains
    Guidelines for practitioners
    2018
    Also available in:

    What efforts need to be made to effectively mainstream gender in agrifood value chain projects and programmes? When can a value chain intervention be considered ‘gender-sensitive’? What actions can be implemented to address gender inequalities along the chain? These guidelines aim to respond to these questions and support practitioners in translating the Gender-Sensitive Value Chain Framework, developed by the FAO into action. Building on FAO’s comparative advantage on gender in agriculture and food security, these guidelines are primarily intended to assist practitioners in designing and implementing interventions that provide women and men with equal opportunities to benefit from agrifood value chain development. They offer practical tools and examples of successful approaches to foster a more systematic integration of gender equality dimensions in value chain interventions in the agricultural sector and enhance the social impact of these interventions. The guidelines are targeted to practitioners in a wide range of organizations and institutions, including national governments, international and NGOs, research institutes and the private sector, in particular: »» value chain practitioners who want to ensure that their interventions are inclusive and socially sustainable, and seek support on how best to address gender issues in their work on agrifood value chains; »» gender experts who are tasked with supporting the integration of gender equality and women’s empowerment objectives in agrifood value chain interventions.

    This publication is a methodological tool and a guiding resource prepared under the “Strengthening national capacities for production and analysis of sex-disaggregated data through the implementation of the FAO Gender and Agriculture Framework (GASF)” project, funded by the FAO / Turkey Partnership Programme (FTTP). The project was implemented from 2013 to 31 May, 2016, and targeted national statistical offices and ministries of agriculture of three countries: Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkey, with the overall objective to assist the beneficiaries in developing gender-sensitive statistics on the agricultural and rural sector, to assess the current status of the rural population – both women and men – and to ensure evidence-based and informed policymaking processes. The contents of the toolkit were validated at three national workshops held respectively in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkey from July 2015 to April 2016.
