Catholic Relief Services commissioned Tulane University’s Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy to complete this report as part of a series of studies to inform new activities under CRS’ Consortium SUR1M initiative. SUR1M is one of 10 projects across the Sahel Region provisionally approved by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) funded Building Resiliency and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) umbrella program. The report assesses different market opportunities and examines priority crop, livestock, and forestry value chains for men and women. It identifies barriers to and opportunities for men and women’s full participation or inclusion and offers strategies to overcome identified barriers.
