Forests, food security and gender: linkages, disparities and priorities for action 

Background paper for the International Conference on Forests for Food and Nutrition, FAO, Rome, 13-15 May, 2013. Paper 1

Women tend to play specific roles in forestry and agroforestry value chains. These are important for their incomes, and in turn for the well-being and food security of their households. However, women’s roles in forestry value chains are generally poorly supported by policy-makers and service providers. The persistent lack of gender-disaggregated data further compounds this problem. Empowering women in the forest sector can (...)

Recent sex-disaggregated data (from the World Bank, FAO and WorldFish Center) represent an initial, positive step in providing the (...)
