A New AfCFTA Protocol is Planned – on Women and Youth

As the AfCFTA progresses with its Protocols (see above), where and how do women traders fit into this scheme of things? The starting point should be to ensure that the needs and interests of women traders and service providers are properly accommodated within the AfCFTA regime and as obligations of the State Parties. The AfCFTA Protocol on Women and the Youth is expected to provide for a new institution too. It should be structured and be empowered to ensure that trade and gender and women’s specific needs remain on the AfCFTA agenda and are discussed in the various technical contexts. EFA will report back in this Newsletter as this new initiative takes shape.
