Changing Lives – Gender
Women play a critical role in global food production and food systems, but they remain disproportionately food insecure compared to men. When women and girls have better access to information, resources, services, decision-making, education and economic opportunities, the result is increased food security and improved nutrition.

Gender equality and women’s and girls’ empowerment are essential building blocks for healthy, prosperous and resilient communities. Societies where girls and women have the tools and opportunities to thrive can promote economic development, support development goals, fight climate change and build food and nutrition security.
