The Gender in Agricultural Policies Analysis Tool (GAPo)

Women play key roles in rural economies, where the fight against hunger and poverty is most pressing. They are also central to family food security and nutrition.

Gender equality can be foster through practical policy measures. The Gender in Agricultural Policies Assessment Tool (GAPo) is a toolkit that FAO developed to support national [...]

Éradiquer la faim et la malnutrition. La collaboration entre la FAO et les parlementaires sur la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle

L’élimination de la faim et de la malnutrition sont au cœur des efforts de la FAO. Dans ce but, toutes les parties prenantes doivent être impliquées, y compris les parlementaires, les acteurs de la société civile et le secteur privé. Il a été démontré que les améliorations en matière de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle sont dues principalement aux politiques, aux programmes et aux cadres ancrés dans la législation. En matière de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle, les parlementaires sont des dépositaires essentiels des engagements politiques et sont donc des partenaires incontournables pour réaliser l’objectif de sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle. La FAO, à travers la [...]
