Published on 29 July 2010

Women can help reduce the rising food insecurity triggered by low agricultural production and price rise. Participants at a function organised by World Food Programme (WFP) here on Friday concluded this, saying that hunger is directly linked to gender inequality. “Like men, if women are trained to enhance their skills in agriculture sector, it is likely that food production will rise by 22 percent,” said Dominique Hyde, WFP’s deputy country director.
