About us

Agri-ProFocus and Gender in Value Chains

Gender in Value Chains is one of the thematic communities active under Agri-ProFocus. In 2008 we started with a group of Dutch NGOs and knowledge professionals to explore the topic of gender in value chains. Its mission is to improve gender equity in agricultural value chain development. Today our ‘community’ comprises of over 800 professionals worldwide from donor agencies, knowledge institutes, NGOs and companies.
