Project status ON-GOING
Project start 2018-08-20

This study is designed in three phases to align with the Fairtrade 2020 Gender Strategy to:

(1) increase the active and equal participation of women in Fairtrade certified smallholder and hired labor organizations;

(2) empower women and girls with opportunities to access equitably the benefits of Fairtrade; and

(3) address systemic issues that hamper the realization of greater gender equality in Fairtrade supply chains

The phased approach is used to assess the early impacts of gender mainstreaming across Fairtrade standards, strategies and producer programs that aim to build the capacities of farmers' organizations to engage in democratic processes. Thus, the study supports steps toward gender equality and intergenerational sustainability (Fairtrade Theory of Change).
