The aim of this report is to provide a framework for mainstreaming of gender issues throughout all project activities, and to function as an action plan for this purpose within the CTA/IFAD/PIPSO Project ‘Promoting Nutritious Food Systems in the Pacific Islands’. Additionally, for those seeking to get insights and ideas on strengthening the gender dimension into agricultural value chain and agribusiness initiatives in the Pacific Islands context, a current stock-take on existing concepts, involved organisations, approaches and key publications can be found.
