European Development Days 2016: Gender and agricultural entrepreneurship - unlocking women's full potential through agricultural empowerment

16 June 2016,
11:00 to 12:15

This session showcases how women in agribusiness can be the drivers of positive change in the social and economic development of their communities.Worldwide, women comprise about 40 % of the agricultural labour force and play a crucial role in food production,  processing and marketing of produce along agricultural value chains. Although they have a critical role to play in all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), women and girls across the world still face significant discrimination in access to productive resources and economic opportunities in agriculture. It is essential to empower rural women and girls to reduce poverty, end hunger and make progress on the SDGs.
