About SD

Gender and development

The Sustainable Development Department aims at stimulating growth with equity, while reducing rural poverty and achieving food security, through provision of adequate and equitable access to productive resources and essential supporting services to both rural women and men.

It works in several key areas: gender training and national capacity building; policy advice, programme and project planning; household resources management, farming systems, food and technology; environment and natural resources management; and data collection, information and gender statistics.

SD is responsible for coordinating implementation of FAO's Plan of Action for Women in Development (1996-2001), and the FAO Gender and Development Plan of Action (2002-2007) in consultation with all units of the Organization.
