Taking place Monday 21 July, in the offices of the Overseas Development Institue, London, UK, Catherine Bertini (Senior Fellow, Agricultural Development Team, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation) will look at the importance of gender in agricultural development, particularly as it relates to South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
In the past few decades, numerous organisations have worked to mainstream an understanding of gender into their work with varying levels of success. With food prices on the rise, agricultural development is garnering greater attention on the international stage as a sustainable solution to hunger and poverty. This unique period in time presents an opportunity to highlight gender integration as a key component for success.
It should be seen as a moment when committed organisations can share lessons learned, look for ways to strengthen capacity and reinvigorate support for gender in our work.
