Because Women Matter - designing interventions in food, nutrition and agriculture that allow women to change their lives
The Unit C1 dealing with rural development, food security and nutrition in the Directorate General for Cooperation and Development published its guide: Because Women Matter - Designing interventions in food, nutrition and agriculture that allow women to change their lives.
Women are essential in rural development and nutrition security. This guide takes DEVCO staff in the delegations through the steps necessary to design an intervention in food, nutrition and agriculture that is informed by a robust gender analysis. By using this guide, EU staff can design interventions that not only increase food and nutrition security, but also promote the equal rights of women and girls, thereby leading to more sustainable development outcomes.
This Guide supports the institutional culture shift that is envisaged in the EU Gender Action Plan (2016-2020) as essential if the EU is to successfully integrate gender equality dimensions more effectively into the design of investments in food and nutrition security and sustainable programmes.
