Guidelines for Assessing Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture

Publisher: TARINA

This manual discusses how the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) can be operationalized in a field setting using TCI’s experience of incorporating the index within a larger household survey in the Chandrapur District of Maharashtra. This was the first time that the WEAI was applied in a field setting in India. Based on this experience, we demonstrate how the WEAI can be adapted according to context-specific characteristics and highlight the inputs required for, and challenges faced during, the design and implementation of the index.
