This brochure presents FAO’s sustained and consistent work towards gender equality and the empowerment of rural women, which are at the core of the Organization’s efforts to end hunger, malnutrition and rural poverty. It provides examples of FAO’s work in agriculture, forestry, fisheries and other sectors in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, and shows that enabling rural women to have the same access as men to resources, services and opportunities, translates into economic and social gains for families, communities and nations at large. It also shows how FAO is contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is fully committed to “leave no one behind”. 13 pp.
