GENDER MAINSTREAMING CONTRIBUTION TO WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT IN INFORMAL SEED SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

The second phase of BENEFIT-ISSD (2016-2019) gives special attention to informal seed sector development. Within that context, enhanced empowerment of women in the access and use of quality seed of their preference at household and community level is one of the intermediary outcomes of BENEFIT-ISSD. To achieve this, BENEFIT-ISSD conducted several activities from 2016 to 2019. The attached briefing note “Women Empowerment in Informal Seed System Development” summarizes the activities implemented using crowdsourcing and Participatory Varietal Selection (PVS) approaches and the findings of a study on the activities’ contribution towards women’s empowerment.
