Learning for Gender Integration Mid-Term Technical Briefs
In 2013, Lutheran World Relief (LWR) and its partner the Asociación para la Diversificación y el Desarrollo Agrícola Comunal (ADDAC) came together to design an innovative project that would target agricultural development and food insecurity with interventions that adopt a gender perspective. Working in cooperation with the local cooperative, Flor de Pancasán, and targeting 409 members (143 women and 266 men), the project
is aimed at increasing coffee and cocoa production, diversifying agricultural production units and strengthening the cooperative in ways that provide the best opportunities for the benefit of both men and women members.
