Transformational AVC Guidelines Paper
Guidelines for Transformational Partnerships and Women’s Economic Empowerment in Agricultural Value Chains (Transformational AVC Guidelines)
The Guidelines for Transformational Partnerships and Women’s Economic Empowerment in Agricultural Value Chains (Transformational AVC Guidelines) are a set of policies and incentives being proposed for adoption by the ASEAN and its member states. The proponents are part of a multi-stakeholder platform who conducted research on practices and policies affecting agricultural value chains (AVCs) in the region. Their study showed how AVC stakeholders and policymakers could contribute to inclusive recovery, building back fairer, and accelerating the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Transformational AVC Guidelines aim to supplement existing ASEAN policies to become more responsive to the needs of women and men small-scale producers in AVCs. These are a set of guidelines that support and incentivize AVC stakeholders to practice a set of Benchmarks. These Benchmarks were developed from best practices of social enterprises and inclusive businesses that successfully transformed the lives and livelihoods of women and men small-scale producers in the ASEAN.
