Rapid Gender Assessment of the Horticulture and Dairy Value Chains in Uganda

    Download Case Study

    A rapid assessment to obtain insight into women’s economic opportunities within the dairy and horticulture value chains was commissioned by the FSD Network Collaborative Gender Programme to support FSD Uganda.

    This report presents insightful findings from the literature reviewed and a field study conducted in selected districts across the tomato and dairy value chains in Uganda. The report provides an overview of the transformative potential on rural women’s livelihoods per value chain, and further explores interventions supporting women to achieve greater resilience, increase their income and exercise greater decision-making.

    The findings of this report will aid development of interventions in line with FSD Uganda’s mandate, under which it works with both public and private sector players, to develop sustainable improvements in the livelihoods of low- income individuals (particularly women) through reduced vulnerability to shocks, increased incomes, and employment creation.
