Thank you Roel, you have excellent materials so maybe I was taken away a bit for that purpose. And your tips are very useful, I will think about the information to share, but I still hope to learn about case writing :)

Dear Roel,

thank you for adding me to this ning.

All right-thinking persons long for a fair and just society where men and women are free to achieve their dreams and aspirations. The essence of gender, in my view, is men and women performing their rightful roles in such a society.

Men and women should be able to identify and implement enterprises that will significantly strengthen their livelihood strategies, while improving natural resource management. In this regard, partnerships are absolutely important and indispensable. Men can’t do without women, and women can’t do without men (they need each other).

Therefore, men and women should work together in the quest to achieve sustainable development at all levels.

I look forward to working with other persons, both men and women.

Hi Roel,
Nice to get your message. I have added the event to this ning. Not sure who from ILRI is leading on it, but will try to find out for you and let you know.

Thanks Roel for the welcome! I have been using the value chain approach in a mulititiude of sectors for the work I do in project/porgram designes. In addition I have a strong focus on gender so this seems to be the forum that brings together my dual focus within the same forum. I look forward to learning and sharing with others. Dorothy

Hi Roel

I just got back to the office today after a short holiday break. We are meeting on Thursday and I will be able to give you a full list of the confirmed participants then. We have got a lot of interest from Ethiopia NGOs and a number of them will be attending, some presenting a paper and others not. Thanks for all the contacts. I see you have seen the TEDx video!

Hello Roel,

Well it would be interesting to hear from some other TVET programmes where they integrate value chain and gender in the curriculum. In Rwanda, tourism is developing and there is a potential a number of sub value chains related to tourism (e.g. agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing). We review how we can integrate this in a module 'value chain' (in the bachelor course tourism). In this module we also integrate gender.


Considering the MDF value chain course and the value chain facilitation course it will be interesting to integrate a session on gender. I am training in the facilitation course (June 2011) so it will be great to discuss about a session and develop training materials! We could make use of an existing case study and see how they connected GVA and see how to facilitate this (power distance e.d.).

Dear Roel,

I do not really know what happen to my account. Yesterday, I tried to enter to post some material and it came to my attention that my page was not there. I tried many times and I noticed everything was erased. For that reason, I tried creating the account again. Could you please look after it and see if we can recover the material I posted before.  I am surprised since I usually check the website and the publications almost everyday. 

Thank you very much for being concerned about my status. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the wonderful job you do connecting practitioners, policymakers and researchers to look after a critical and important topic: Gender in agriculture and the new possibilities we have to develop agriculture and overcome food crisis and food raising prices: Value Chains including gender

My best regards
