Get Started

For decades, fair trade has emerged as a model used to promote fair relations between producers and consumers and a shift towards an economic model that respects people’s rights as well as the environment. In particular, this model can be of great use in addressing the gender inequalities that still persist in our society, where the empowerment of women is fundamental to achieve inclusive and equitable economic development.

In this course we will analyse why it is important to promote fair trade, with the specific objective of contributing to reducing gender inequalities and supporting rural value chains. We will also present a practical implementation method for the design and implementation of a support strategy to rural value chains for women empowerment, as well as the key contextual determinants, the possible risks and the strategies to face these risks.
