Building a networks of experts for gender-sensitive food security, agriculture and rural development policies/programmes and for adequate social protection measures for rural people

As an alternative to the FAO ECA Working Party on Women and the Family in Rural Development (WPW), REU is currently working on establishing a network of experts on gender and social protection. The network will carry forward the knowledge accumulated by the WPW and will be fully accessible for civil society as well as for private actors. In 2015, a consultation will take place with national experts from focus countries regarding the status of gender and social protection policies targeted to rural populations, and particularly, agricultural households.
