The Women’s Economic Empowerment through Agricultural Value Chain Enhancement (WEAVE) project is funded by the Australian Government via the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) and implemented by a consortium of three international non-governmental organizations – CVN International, Oxfam, and SNV.
WEAVE supports ethnic minority women’s economic empowerment in pork, cinnamon, and banana value chains (VCs). This is achieved by promoting equality between women and men, within households and producer groups; strengthening male and female producer skills and bargaining power; and working with businesses and government decision-makers to improve the policy environment to support producers.
The project’s goal is to enhance women’s economic empowerment and social inclusion in agricultural value chains in rural Vietnam.
The Final Evaluation was conducted in October and November 2020 to review the implementation of WEAVE, generate lessons learnt and recommendations for the future project. One hundred and seventy-three key informants, 28 cohort cases, and 453 households participated in the final evaluation.
The following report presents the key findings from the final assessment.
