Have Questions about the Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index?

April 2, 2012

The Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) is the first measure to directly capture women's empowerment and inclusion levels in the agricultural sector. The WEAI focuses on five areas: decisions over agricultural production, power over productive resources such as land and livestock, decisions over income, leadership in the community, and time use.

What are the components of the Index? How does the Index work in practice? And how can it be applied in different projects and contexts?

Join the #AskAg Twitter chat hosted by Agrilinks, USAID, and Feed the Future to speak directly with WEAI experts Emily Hogue and Tania Tam of USAID’s Bureau for Food Security. Tweet questions to @Agrilinks or post questions in the comments section (of the original post on Agrilinks) to help frame the hour-long discussion. You can learn more about the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index from Feed the Future and USAID.

Join us tomorrow, April 3 from noon to 1 p.m. (EDT) on Twitter for discussion and answers! Submit a question to @Agrilinks.
