Gender, agrifood value chains and climate-resilient agriculture in Small Island Developing States


In the current context of the climate crises in Small Island Developing States (SIDS), continuing efforts to ensure gender equality can increase people’s resilience and promote better food security and nutrition. This document seeks to enrich the knowledge and evidence base on gender, food systems and resilience in the SIDS of the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea (AIS) region, with examples from Barbados, Cabo Verde, Comoros (the), Palau, Saint Lucia, Samoa and Sao Tome and Principe.

The publication illustrates how to promote gender transformative solutions for climate action and sustainable food systems, in particular in the tourism sector. With a critical focus on the role women play in ensuring food security and nutrition in SIDS, the publication also shows how to address the root causes of gender inequalities and how to build the resilience of rural livelihoods in unforeseen events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
