CTA Value4Her: Call for Digital Registration of Women Agribusinesses

CTA Value4Her is a call for digital registration of women-owned agribusinesses in Eastern and Southern Africa. This registration will facilitate the development of a digital database for women-owned agribusinesses in Africa, the first agribusiness intelligence network targeting women agri-entrepreneurs.

The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is a joint international institution of the African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Union (EU). CTA operates under the framework of the Cotonou Agreement and is funded by the EU.

CTA Value4Her

CTA in collaboration with its regional partners, African Women in Agribusiness Network (AWAN East Africa) and the Africa Women Innovation and Entrepreneurship Forum (AWIEF), has recently launched a programming initiative named CTA Value4Her. The CTA Value4Her is a continental initiative aimed at increasing incomes for women from agribusinesses through access to markets, finance, improving knowledge, skills, and capacity and through advocacy, thus addressing some of the key barriers for women’s empowerment in agriculture.
