"Honouring women around the world, from crop to cup"
The observance of the International Tea Day aims to raise awareness of the key role the sector plays in reducing extreme poverty (SDG1), fighting hunger (SDG2), empowering women (SDG5), supporting the sustainable use of the terrestrial ecosystem (SDG15), and in contributing to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This year, the event, inaugurated by FAO Director-General QU Dongyu, will highlight women and their role in the tea sector. Following the inauguration, there will be a dialogue featuring the participation of the FAO Director-General and women representatives from the tea and coffee sectors.
