Welcome to the M&E Blog Series! I’m Tania Tam from the Feed the Future M&E Team. I’m planning to give you a peek into Feed the Future M&E from the inside and start discussions about M(&)E.

In this blog series, we’ll be talking about the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index, our FTF Learning Agenda, and other M&E topics of note. You can expect to see a post every two weeks. We hope you bookmark us and follow us on Twitter and Facebook. Post your comments on what we can do to make this more useful for you!

Last week, Emily Hogue and I answered your questions about the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) in a Twitter Hour, through the medium of tweet-speak. We got a lot of great questions and had a lot of fun responding to your tweets. 

Questions & Answers from the Twitter Chat

The Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index is the first of its kind, measuring whether women can own land and equipment, access credit, make decisions about the crops they grow, and much more. Unlike many other surveys, it also takes men into account, and compares women’s empowerment to men’s empowerment. So I’d like to take a moment to share some of the questions and answers from our Twitter Hour.
