Gender-based violence (GBV) is widespread, affecting people in every country and across every industry, income level, race, ethnicity, religion and education level. It affects women’s ability to access healthcare, benefit from income-generating activities, participate fully in political and civic life and contribute to economic growth.

This toolkit is intended to provide practical, how-to guidance for agriculture and MSD project technical staff and gender and social inclusion advisors. It specifically focuses on GBV within the context of day-to-day agriculture programming and aims to:

  1. Make it easier to identify how and where GBV manifests within the context of agriculture and MSD programming
  2. Enable project staff to think through entry points to integrate GBV prevention, mitigation, and response into project activities 

Useful for:

Implementing partner agriculture and MSD technical staff focused on developing and implementing food security, agriculture, and MSD programming
