dc.description.abstract This literature review provides a gender analysis of the cassava, poultry, horticulture, and oilseed value chains in Tanzania, with an emphasis on activities which offer the greatest potential economic opportunities for youth. The review found that men and women have different levels of knowledge, access and control over resources, and varying opportunities to participate across all value chains. Cultural traditions influence observed gender differences in the allocation of roles and responsibilities, ownership of production and processing assets, resource use and distribution of income accrued from economic activities. The review identified factors contributing to sex segmentation in employment and entrepreneurship, including gender differences in access to land, credit, market information, education and skills levels, and ability to travel. Finally, the review identified key policy, program, and knowledge gaps requiring attention in order to improve the design and implementation of more gender-inclusive youth training programs in the agrifood sector en_US
