Gender and Food Security

Project name/title
Gender and Food Security
Year:
2006
Theme:
Poverty, Inequality and Well-being
Abstract:
UNU-WIDER’s recent project ‘Hunger and Food Security’ exerted a strong attraction for academia, international organizations (FAO, WFP, and UNCTAD), civil society organizations, and the media. The first project meeting, held in Jaipur in March 2005, concluded that the gender dimension of food security demands special attention. The “Gender and Food Security” project will examine the effect of the status of women relative to men on various aspects of food-security.
