IGNITE: Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI)Training Module
IGNITE Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index Training Tool
The Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index Training Tool is a way for organizations to understand how to use the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index to measure women’s empowerment and inclusion in the agriculture sector.
This training will provide a general overview of the WEAI to help participants gain a better understanding of what it is, what it entails, and how it can be used to inform gender-responsive programming.
The Impacting Gender & Nutrition through Innovative Technical Exchange in Agriculture (IGNITE) mechanism is a five-year investment funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by Tanager, Laterite, and 60 Decibels to strengthen African institutions’ ability to integrate nutrition and gender into their way of doing business and their agriculture interventions.
IGNITE also identifies models that demonstrate ways of effectively and efficiently increasing both equitable consumption of safe, affordable, nutritious diets year-round and increased women’s empowerment in agriculture, and cultivates networks of local service providers to reach greater nutrition impact and gender equality in agriculture through ongoing technical assistance.
