International Women's Day 2011 - Women in Agriculture: Closing the gender gap for development

The findings of FAO's State of Food and Agriculture report 2010-11 (SOFA): "Women in Agriculture: Closing the gender gap for development," were the focus of a high-level roundtable debate organized by the three Rome-based UN agencies - FAO, IFAD and WFP.

This video is a short excerpt from the event, moderated by BBC anchor Zeinab Badawi, which brought together a regionally diverse panel of agricultural experts from the UN, governments, academia, foundations and farmers' organizations to discuss the messages and findings of the report.
