stages in the process
Stage 1: Preliminary Scoping and value chain mapping (1-3 day workshop)
Stage 2: Community-led action learning with stakeholders (6 months – 1 year) with different stakeholder groups, particularly the poorest and most vulnerable, to identify poverty/business and gender issues at each level; identify and implement immediate change strategies; and strengthen collaboration and peer sharing.
Stage 3: Identification, planning and negotiation of multi-stakeholder win-win strategies: bringing the stakeholders together for focused discussion and negotiation on potentially more conflictual issues like prices and remain gender inequalities.

This includes peer upscaling within the different stakeholder groups, integration of gender action learning and multi-stakeholder win-win negotiation in organisational activities (project design, ongoing activities, planning processes, human resources management) and policy advocacy.
Integrating Gender Justice
Gender Justice is integrated into the process at all stages through:
- ensuring equal invclusion of women and men at all levels and in all processes
- integration of specific GALS tools to focus on gender issues
- integration of gender justice questions in design and use of generic tools
- gender analysis of the outcomes
- focusing of actions and support on those strategies which reinforce CEDAW
- lack of support for any actions or strategies which undermine women's human rights or in any way reinforce gender inequality.
