Gender and Pro-Poor Value Chain Analysis: Insights from the Gate Project Methodoogy and Case Studies.

Gammage describes the Greater Access to Trade Expansion (GATE) project's methodology for gender in value chain analysis. The document makes an argument for a mixed methods gender and pro-poor value chain analysis, including estimate of costs and returns, value added, labor market segmentation, and the analysis of power and the terms of exchange throughout the chain. Gammage discusses the value chain from an economic perspective arguing that it can be used to illuminate opportunities to improve men and women's employment throughout the chain.
