LR-Gals 2014 v1 image1

Between the 7th and 14th of September 2014

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) in collaboration with PROCASUR had the pleasure of presenting the Learning Route: "Innovative tools and approaches to enhance gender equality in value chain development"

that took place in Uganda, between the 7th and the 14th of September 2014

Through a face-to-face learning, the 8-day Learning Route presented the opportunity of learning directly in the field and from its protagonist some of the best practices on the community-led empowerment methodology known as the Gender Action Learning System (GALS), to boost pro-poor/inclusive Value Chain Development (VCD) and to improve gender equality and women's empowerment through VCD. The Main objective of this Learning Route was to reflect on how the linkages between vulnerable and powerful stakeholders in the development of Value Chains can be improved sustainably to enhance gender equality and improve rural livelihoods.

During this unique journey through knowledge, participants were supported by PROCASUR and experts, in the design of an "Innovation Plan" aimed at integrating and adopting the best practices in their respective settings and enhancing their organizations and projects. A Contest after the Learning Route prized the best three Innovation Plans with a starting capital of USD 2500.
