|English||Skills development is a key to improve rural productivity, employability and income-earning opportunities, enhancing food security and promoting environmentally sustainable rural development and livelihoods. Despite rural women’s major role in agriculture and other rural activities, higher barriers in education and training limit their opportunities and capacities to engage in more productive and remunerative work, perform managerial and leadership roles and participate fully in the development of their communities, and demand targeted action to dismantle them.
This paper targets national authorities concerned with ensuring food safety and quality, stakeholders and groups or associations that influence national policy.
This paper provide advice on strategies to strengthen rural girls’ and women’s opportunities for education and training. |
