The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has published a new report on the situation of women in food systems. The document provides a comprehensive overview from production to distribution and consumption of food.
The report notes that addressing gender inequalities in agrifood systems and empowering women reduces hunger, boosts the economy and strengthens resilience to crises such as climate change and the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
“Achieving efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agri-food systems will depend on the empowerment of all women and gender equality. Women have always worked in agrifood systems. It’s time we made agri-food systems work for women”, says Mr. QU Dongyu, Director-General of FAO.
