I would love to talk to anyone who has done gender work on mung beans, including if possible with respect to mechanical harvesting.

I will be examining this issue in relation to mung bean in Myanmar and Bangladesh, with colleagues of course. Would be super to chat.

Anne Marie Kortleve Hi Cathy, I don;t think we have specific experience in mung beans/mechanical harvesting, but my colleagues Caroline van der Molen or Angelica Senders know a lot about our general gender in value chains appraoch and might be able to help you further. Good luck with your work!

Dear Colleagues,

I am working with a colleague Nasrin Sultana on a study (lit review and fieldwork) for World Fish on aquaculture (esp home ponds/ghers) in Bangladesh. Would love to hear of exciting approaches to addressing gender.

Am very happy to skype and Nasrin can meet people based in Bangladesh. Do send literature on your work - would be much appreciated. As you no doubt know innovation/gender-transformative approaches is the WF byline, really, so this is what we'd love to hear about and of course lessons learned the hard way.

Thank you Cathy

(a) suggest people to talk to about gender and value chains/ gender and marketing in Lusaka/ around. We really need to meet experts on this issue with Zambia-specific knowledge and experience. So far I have very few relevant contacts ...
(b) provide us with relevant gender and value chain literature based on work actually conducted in Zambia.
