Corporate Responsibility and Women's Employment: The Cashew Nut Case
Briefing, 7 pages
CRED Perspectives is a new series of briefing papers that bring new perspectives and themes to the Corporate Responsibility debate, in order to highlight where and how business activity can best contribute to sustainable development, particularly in the South. The second paper in the CRED Perspectives series looks at women's employment in the cashew nut sector. It uses research carried out in Mozambique and India to highlight the challenges of encouraging corporate responsibility in a sector in which there is currently little consumer or buyer pressure for higher standards.
