Women in Cotton: Use of Technology
CottonConnect intentionally focuses on women in cotton farming. The report ‘Planting the Seed: A journey to gender equality in the cotton sector’ gave an insight into the gender issues faced by the cotton industry. It provided a compelling argument for expanding gender equality programmes within farming communities in India and beyond. The subsequent report, ‘Women in Cotton: Findings from a gendered value chain mapping’, showed how crucial women are to cotton production, and how challenges and opportunities vary across India and China.
The latest report ‘Women in Cotton: Use of Technology’ explores how technology can be used to create access to training, increase knowledge, enable decision making and empower women cotton farmers.
