The reality of women in agriculture in ECOWAS region

The agricultural sector is one of the main contributors to economic growth and sustainable development in ECOWAS member countries. Women are driving forces for agricultural development, food security and nutrition in the region. They represent an important percentage of the agricultural labour force. They are the frontline nutrition care givers in the family, producing, storing, cleaning and cooking the food. They are also labour providers in agro-industries. However, they still face major challenges.
