Virtual Living Income Workshop #3
June 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
As co-facilitators of the Living Income Community of Practice, the Food Lab is happy to invite partners to the 3rd Virtual Living Income Workshop. Originally planned in April as a 2-day in-person event, the Workshop is now open to all participants who are interested in learning more about Living Income. This third workshop explores strategies that support living income for smallholder farmers. Achieving living incomes is about more than just what buyers pay. It’s also about enabling farmers to improve yields and profitability, offering access to financial services, developing additional sources of income, and providing basic services. Gender equality and advancing women’s economic participation is a key part of all of this. By combining living income benchmarks with other information, like data on current incomes in a specific region or sector, we can get a better understanding of what action needs to be taken to close the income gap, and how different actors can contribute. In this third workshop we will highlight pricing, diversification and farmer leadership, and in the following months continue with additional deep dive webinars on finance, supply management and pricing.
