Empowering women in the cotton sector

This project sought to empower women in the Zambian cotton sector by providing technical support to enterprises and institutions. The project supported women farmers to play a more instrumental role within the cotton value chain in areas such as ginning by strengthening the gender-related work of the Cotton Association of Zambia. Women farmers were able to enhance their skills in business development using the ACCESS! training programme developed for women exporters.
