GAP Partner: RWEE

The Joint Programme on “Accelerating Progress towards the Economic Empowerment of Rural Women” (JP RWEE) is a global initiative whose overarching goal is to secure rural women’s livelihoods and rights in the context of sustainable development. Jointly implemented by FAO, IFAD, WFP and UN Women in Ethiopia, Guatemala, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Nepal, Niger, and Rwanda, the JP RWEE builds on each Agency’s comparative advantage and strengths in order to improve the status of women in rural areas and has four main outcomes: i) Improved food and nutrition security; ii) Increased income to sustain livelihoods; iii) Enhanced participation in decision-making; iv) a more gender-responsive policy environment for rural women in agriculture.
