The Women in Agribusiness Week (WAW)
Is a week-long series of impactful activities to strengthen collaborations among Women in Agribusiness and stakeholders and to salute their achievements. The Women in Agribusiness Week will run under the theme ‘Sustaining African Agribusiness : Leveraging on Digitalisation, AFCFTA and Climate Resilience for Food Security’. WAW which will later be replicated in other African countries is scheduled for 13th to 18th of November 2023 in three major regions in Ghana which are Greater Accra, Ashanti and Northern.
Agriculture is a crucial sector that supports the livelihood of millions of people in Africa, with women playing an essential role in food production, processing, and marketing. However, despite their significant contribution to agribusiness, women face numerous challenges, including limited access to finance, land, and technology, among others. Therefore, there is a need to create a platform where women can share their experiences, learn from each other, and find innovative solutions to overcome these challenges.
WAW aims to provide a platform for women in agribusiness to:
- Promote success stories, experiences, and best practices of Women in Agribusiness
- Foster partnerships and networks to enhance collaboration and innovation in agribusiness
- Explore solutions and strategies to improve access to finance, land, technology, and markets
- Identify and discuss challenges that hinder their growth and empowerment
WAW targets women entrepreneurs, farmers, processors, traders, financiers, policymakers, and development partners working in the agribusiness sector in Africa.
