GRAISESA - Identifying Gender Inequalities And Possibilities For Change In Shrimp Value Chains In Indonesia And Vietnam

Identifying Gender Inequalities And Possibilities For Change In Shrimp Value Chains In Indonesia And Vietnam

Since the inception of GRAISEA at the beginning of 2015, pilots in shrimp aquaculture were launched in Indonesia and Vietnam. One element of these projects is to connect with ongoing efforts to develop more sustainable methods in shrimp aquaculture. Oxfam has advocated that the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), one of the certification initiatives and aquaculture improvement programmes, includes social aspects as standard.

GRAISEA: Mid-Term Evaluation April 2015-September 2016

The Gender Transformative & Responsible Business Investment in South East Asia (GRAISEA) programme believes that equitable, sustainable and viable value chains can be built for agriculture commodities through multi-stakeholder cooperation. Governments can provide policies and laws to guide and require responsible business and gender equity, agribusiness can enter into partnerships for fair value chains and gender empowerment, and investors can offer financial services and products for small-scale producer growth and sustainability. The mid-term evaluation covers April 2015-September 2016.
