Gender-transformative approaches are a great concept but they are best when brought to implementation.
Therefore the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy in collaboration with the Global Programme Sustainability and Value Added in Agricultural Supply Chains developed Feminist & Fair: The Future of Agricultural Supply Chains — a call for proposals for consortia that want to work with gender-transformative approaches.
The competition ran during the summer and called on global companies to submit project ideas in cooperation with international and national organizations.
In the spirit of feminist development policy, the projects are intended to foster fairness in global agricultural supply chains and address existing systemic inequalities.
In doing so, they follow the three Rs formula, which means promoting the rights, representation and resources of women and other politically marginalized groups from an intersectional perspective.
The participating consortia target the transformation of the cocoa, coffee and tea supply chains in Africa.
The winning projects will be announced shortly and will be accompanied by GIZ during implementation.
