Gender equality and sustainable value chains are interdependent goals. With less access to technologies and as primary providers of food and fuel, women are disproportionately impacted by climate change.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) women’s yields could increase by 20-30% with the right training and access to irrigation and drought mitigation techniques.
This webinar will examine:
- Climate risks that women are subjected to in the agricultural sector
- How mainstreaming gender equality in the agricultural sector can help build more climate resilient supply chains
- the business case for empowering women through climate-resilient supply chains and give inspiration on how to do it
By integrating gender considerations into the development of agricultural value chains is not only necessary from a human rights perspective, it also helps businesses to forge more climate resilient and sustainable supply chains.
