The report, commissioned by the Evaluation Department of DANIDA, examines which gender issues are important when and where in value chains, focusing on development interventions that explicitly or implicitly employ a value chain approach. In box 2 on page 24 an example of certification to improve gender equality in the cocoa value chain is highlighted. The gender specific constraints identified for female cocoa farmers (e.g. limited access to cooperative membership and decision making bodies, to cocoa markets, to training and information, to land, to credit) can be found in most other agricultural sectors. Recommendations given are therefore deemed useful also in relation to other sustainability standards.
