Case Studies

 

 

  • The 'Lead-Firm' model in Tanzania - In Kishapu district in Tanzania, Oxfam adopted the ‘Lead-Firm’ Model and partnered with Katani Ltd. to improve smallholder access to markets in the sisal value chain.

 

 

  • Women's Collective Action in the Shea Sector in Mali - The findings from Mali show that in the right conditions, the active participation of women in collective action (CA) can empower individual women, and contribute to lasting changes in gender relations.

It is comprised of an introduction and 7 steps - Farm System Analysis,  Household System Analysis, Market Analysis, Gendered Market Mapping, Decide the Vision, and Finalise Project. The toolkit has not yet been made public, but Oxfam staff can access it through Sumus and anyone else can send an email to lrichards1@oxfam.org.uk to obtain a copy. The GEM Toolkit Group provides a space for  people who are using the toolkit to share experiences and give feedback.

  • Rough guide for designing programmes for WEL in Agricultural Product Markets - a rough guide for the design of markets-based agricultural programmes that are inclusive of women smallholders and build their economic leadership. In this guide, you will find a brief description of steps and principles for programme design, a list of resources available, and links to those resources.
  • Gender Action Learning System (GALS) - Oxfam Novib’s WEMAN programme has developed the Gender Action Learning System (GALS) tool, which has been adapted from the generic Participatory Learning Action System (PALS).

Making the Food System Work for Women debate

 

Making the Food System Work for Women was a global online policy discussion forum, intended to reframe the discourse on food security from the perspective of women’s rights and women’s agency. The discussion sought to generate bold proposals for building a collective agenda to advance gender justice within the food system.

 

The discussion was structured around essays from leading thinkers on women’s rights and food justice, and the debate continues in the comments below.
