Building Resilience and Inclusive Markets Learning Journey: Exploring Practical approaches to identifying & reducing risks, improving resilience of women and small-scale producers and improving market
This workshop is a collaborative event of OXFAM’s CoP on WEL (Asia’s Community of Practice on Women’s Economic Leadership) the GEM (Gendered Enterprise and Markets) programme, Sustainable Food Lab (SFL) and Catholic Relief Services (CRS).
The CoP on WEL is an annual action- learning event of livelihood practitioners in the Asia region on a specific theme linked to promoting women economic leadership in sustainable livelihoods. The GEM programme hosts an annual learning journey each year around a theme related to market-based livelihoods.
