Share This Page

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Leveraging Economic Opportunities (LEO) project enhanced USAID programs, projects, and activities focused on creating inclusive market systems. Banyan Global provided technical assistance on women’s economic empowerment through the development of a technical brief on the effective engagement of men in programming to achieve women’s economic empowerment (WEE) and gender equality outcomes in the agricultural sector using a market systems approach. The brief established five key considerations for this engagement, drawing upon relevant literature and case studies from both within and outside the agricultural sector. Banyan Global also served as a facilitator of the SEEP Women’s Economic Empowerment Working Group through the USAID/LEO project, and participated in the Transforming Market Systems Conference in September 2016.
