CPF (ROPPA) - Awareness raising on gender issues at the Union Nationale des Producteurs de Riz du Burkina (UNPRB)

The Union Nationale des Producteurs de Riz du Burkina (UNPRB) is an umbrella organization created in 2005 comprising about 35 rice cooperatives. The UNPRB operates in a sector where women play an important role at the base through rice processing and marketing. Nonetheless, they are weakly involved in the operation and implementation of activities of the UNPRB.

A sensitization mission in the plains of Nyassa, Douna, Banzon and Bama took place in March 2011 to raise awareness on gender equity in favor of the officials in charge of the management of the visited rice unions and cooperatives.

Given the time available, the mission focused on capacity building to staff with a view to integrate gender equity in production, processing, marketing and management of projects and programs of the UNPRB.
