Agri-Food Cooperative Women of Spain

The Association of Agri-Food Cooperative Women of Spain, AMCAE, was created from the identification made in the framework of the Integra Project (2011-2013). It reflected the limited role and level of participation of (Spanish) women farmers and livestock breeders in agri-food cooperatives. The corrective measures proposed as a result of this finding are aimed at balancing and promoting the level of participation of women in cooperatives, as well as highlighting the need to create networks of women in the sector, to facilitate the sharing of objectives, challenges and lines of action.

Agri-Food Cooperative Women of Spain

The Association of Agri-Food Cooperative Women of Spain, AMCAE, was created from the identification made in the framework of the Integra Project (2011-2013). It reflected the limited role and level of participation of (Spanish) women farmers and livestock breeders in agri-food cooperatives. The corrective measures proposed as a result of this finding are aimed at balancing and promoting the level of participation of women in cooperatives, as well as highlighting the need to create networks of women in the sector, to facilitate the sharing of objectives, challenges and lines of action.  


Therefore, among AMCAE's objectives are the promotion, articulation and defence of the integration of women associates in agricultural cooperatives or societies of agricultural transformation, as well as their economic, political and socio-cultural participation. In order to contribute to these objectives, projects will be carried out in which, in addition, the aim is to encourage the visualization of women in the rural environment, to combat inequality between men and women, and to promote their access to training, innovation, technology and education. 


In order to meet the objectives set, AMCAE has developed a program of actions of special interest to promote the role of women in rural development under the title "Women in Agri-food Cooperatives: Guaranteeing Territorial Sustainability and Advancing the Rural Environment".
