This guide provides guidelines for insuring that women are included in and benefit from value chain development activities.  It offers a framework and methodology for “Gender Equitable Value Chain Action Learning” (GEVCAL), which combines 'push-up' and 'pull-up' approaches, incorporating insights from pilot projects in Ethiopia and Kenya.  The document grew out of an ILO project on “Improving Market Access for Women in the Informal Economy.”
