Project Overview:

Resonance (https://resonanceglobal.com/) is a US-based global consulting firm that helps a variety of donor, commercial and investor clients around the world to solve urgent global development challenges through a mix of private sector partnership, innovation, and market-led approaches. Investing in Women to Strengthen Supply Chains is a Global Development Alliance (GDA), between USAID and PepsiCo to make the business case for women’s economic empowerment (WEE) in agricultural supply chains. USAID and PepsiCo are working together to strengthen women’s agricultural skills and access to resources within PepsiCo’s supply chains and to demonstrate the value of women’s contributions to core business and impact goals. The partnership aims to ensure that women – as farmers or workers – benefit from being directly or indirectly involved within PepsiCo’s supply chains while also being empowered within their households and communities. The project also aims to promote positive masculinity among male producers to shift gender norms and create more inclusive agricultural supply chains.

The partnership interventions target farmers, laborers, and farming households along with other supply chain actors. Together, the partners will provide evidence-based models, new on-farm approaches, and data and insights to make a practical and compelling business case for scaling investments in women’s economic empowerment within PepsiCo and other global companies. An underlying hypothesis that the partnership is designed to test and strengthen is that increased women’s inclusion and empowerment will enable more competitive and sustainable supply chain outcomes related to regenerative practice uptake, farm yields, farm profitability, and overall supply chain resilience. The prime geographic focus of the partnership is in the western 5 districts of U.P.
