Résumé partiel
Executive Summary Sustainable Enterprise Development for Women and Youth The Government of Zimbabwe (GoZ) intends to build on the achievements of the first AfDB funded Youth and Women Empowerment Project (YWEP) – 2017 – 2022. This new project that will run from 2022 to 2025 will scale up interventions on economic empowerment of women and youth in agricultural value chains (horticulture and dairy) and small-scale gemstone mining sectors by stimulating value addition and beneficiation to improve decent job creation. The project will expand operations of the Mutoko fruits and vegetables processing facility to better serve horticulture farmers in the district and surrounding areas. Two new food processing facilities will be established ; one fruits and vegetables processing facility in Mutasa district and one milking parlour in Umguza district. The fruits and vegetables processing facility shall be set up in a designated business zone in the district and the milking parlour in an existing vocational training centre. In addition, the project will promote access to safe markets for women traders in Bulawayo and Masvingo through constructing two safe markets with basic health and sanitary facilities. The project will also facilitate the work of the GOZ ; a) to promote the beneficiation and marketing of gemstones and strengthen Occupational Safety and Health for artisanal miners in Karoi district ; b) support the development of the minerals policy and the Gemstones Beneficiation and Value Addition Strategy ; c) support the development of Gender mainstreaming guidelines for 11 ministries ; d) review and align the Broad-Based Women Economic Empowerment Framework to the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS-1) ; e) build the capacity of cross border traders on COMESA and SADC Simplified Trade Regimes (STRs) and f) capacity building of young entrepreneurs.
