The research was conducted by local organisations in Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania and Uganda and has been summarised by Women Working Worldwide. This document outlines the outstanding problems that have been found on some of the farms, although it is important to acknowledge that improvements have been made on some farms in the region as a result of work by international and national stakeholders.
