Feed the Future Catalyzing Partnerships for Scale - USAID Strategic Framework for Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equality (WE3)
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment within the Economic Growth, Education and Environment Bureau engaged FHI 360 through the Feed the Future Catalyzing Partnerships for Scale award to support the development of a strategic framework for promoting women’s economic empowerment and equality (WE3).
The Feed the Future Catalyzing Partnerships for Scale project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Food Security, assists USAID Missions that implement Feed the Future initiatives to increase the rate of adoption of proven technologies and practices.
This assessment provides USAID staff in the Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment with an understanding of how implementing partners (IPs) are prioritizing WE3 and, by extension, implementing the Gender Equality and Female Empowerment Policy.
