Hoi Anna, Ik neem aan dat jij Anna laven bent?
Ik krijg net een link van een ILO manual van 2007. http://genderinvaluechains.pbworks.com/f/Gender%20%26%20VC%20-%20ILO%20draft.pdf Ik weet niet of je die al kent. Geen idee of de voor eind september aangekondigde manual heel anders is, deze ziet er ook goed uit. Kijk ook eens onder de tab cybrary, ik heb wel weer wat aardis materiaal gekregen en geupload in delicious Groetjes

Dear Anna,

I have read the paper on gender and value chains and attended the workshop on Monday, very interesting and useful for me! Thank you.

We integrate value chain and gender in a tourism curriculum (for a tourism college in Rwanda) so it provided me some new insights.

You need to be a member of Gender in Value Chains to add comments!
