This report provides a gender assessment of a specific part of Myanmar, the Inle Lake area in Shan State, and focuses on the agriculture sector, particularly the tea, avocado and ginger value chains,4 and on tourism. It examines how to improve women’s wellbeing in Shan State and the Inle Lake area through their participation in economic activities, especially in the agriculture and tourism sectors. Specifically, the report analyses the barriers that hamper women’s beneficial participation in these economic sectors and impede establishing linkages between each of the three agricultural value chains and the tourism sector. Developing and strengthening such linkages would likely contribute to women’s empowerment and gender equality, as well as to economic development in the area.
