FAO-ITC EWAT Programme: Roundtable on women’s roles in the soybean-to-poultry value chain in Tanzania


    This roundtable is co-organised by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Trade Centre’s (ITC) SheTrades Initiative, under the ‘Empowering women and boosting livelihoods through agricultural trade: Leveraging the AfCFTA’ project (the EWAT project). 

    Under the EWAT project, FAO and ITC are conducting research to study the participation, roles, constraints and opportunities of women in the soybean-to-poultry value chain in United Republic of Tanzania with a trade lens. Findings of this research will be used to develop gender-responsive recommendations to promote market expansion, and upgrading along the value chain of women farmers, processors, traders, and businesses, in particular in the context of the intra-regional market opened by the AfCFTA. 

    This roundtable aims to present, discuss, and gather feedback and insights from key stakeholders operating in United Republic of Tanzania’s soybean-to-poultry value chain to inform and complete the study’s key findings and recommendations.
