The Intervention will integrate a women-centered ecological approach and other gender-specific methodologies, such as those used to address GBV with the Rainforest Alliance’s proven market-based conservation approach--that has been helping people across Latin America build self-reliance and prosperity for decades. This new Women’s Empowerment Business Development Approach (WEBDA) will be validated, adapted locally in three countries, and implemented with leading producer associations and the collaboration of private companies and local governments.

This project is expected to run from July 15, 2020 through July 14, 2025 with an estimated total USAID investment of $7,500,000.

USAID’s implementer for this project is Rainforest Alliance.
