Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the  International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) have come together to develop a Womens Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) to measure women’s roles and engagement in the agriculture sector.

Women are a primary focus of USAID’s Feed the Future (FTF) Initiative – a global hunger and food security initiative that aims to reduce poverty and undernutrition. Read more about the WEAI Index.
