Published on March 27, 2017

Capture.PNGInvesting in Women along Agribusiness Value Chains is a publication of the International Finance Corporation. It calls on the private sector to invest in closing gaps between men and women in agribusiness.

The report also focuses on four different stages of a simplified value chain namely: input provision and use; production; post-harvest processing and storage and; transportation, marketing, and sales.

It is a useful report in helping companies to identify potential benefits from closing gender gaps by reviewing women’s contributions and constraints within each stage, outlining gender-smart solutions for the private sector, demonstrating the business rationale for making gender-smart investments, and presenting best practice case studies.
