Measuring Empowerment in Agricultural Development Projects using Pro-WEAI

This session complements a recently-launched distance learning course on the project-level Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (pro-WEAI) During the session, participants will learn about survey fieldwork, index construction, qualitative analysis, as well as reporting and interpretation of results, using one of the indicators (Work Balance) as an example. The session will also provide resources for all participants to learn more about how to use pro-WEAI. To ensure that everyone is familiar with the basics of pro-WEAI, all participants are expected to take the free online course in advance of the session, and are invited to submit questions in advance of the workshop, as well as during the workshop.
