The Productive Sector Development Programme (PSDP) focuses on targeting the macroeconomic policy environment for women working in the agriculture and agri-food manufacturing sectors, in order to help create an enabling, equitable, and protective environment that would help them be actively part of the labour force.

This is done by:

(1) developing gender-responsive policy and legislative reforms to address key barriers to women’s economic participation, including unpaid care work; 

(2) facilitating policy dialogue among national stakeholders, government bodies, and the private sector to advocate for gender-responsive policy and legislative reforms.

This Macro-level component is led by UNWOMEN.
