SheTrades: Empowering women and boosting livelihoods through agricultural trade: Leveraging the AfCFTA Phase II

    Overview

    Summary

    The Project Empowering women and boosting livelihoods through agricultural trade: Leveraging the AfCFTA Phase II contributes to ITC’s Strategic Plan in relation to gender equality and regional integration, in particular ITC Gender Moon Shot and One Trade Africa Strategy, as well as the FAO strategy to support the AfCFTA. 


    Building on results achieved in Phase I, this project aims to empower women producers, processors, and informal and formal traders in agriculture and agro-processing value chains as well as agriculture women-led MSMEs to benefit from trade opportunities created by the AfCFTA through capacity-building, policy research and policy dialogues. The project contributes to ITC and FAO’s ongoing support to the implementation of the AfCFTA.
