Investing in Women Smallholder Farmers: An ActionAid International Briefing

 

Many poor communities depend on women to grow most of the food they eat, yet women farmers struggle with a severe lack of extension services, credit, inputs, and productive assets. Merely by ensuring women farmers get the same access to these resources as men, the G20 could lift 100 million people out of hunger.
It’s time for the international community, including G20 governments, international organisations, and the Committee for World Food Security (CFS)to meaningfully confront world hunger by acknowledging the many irreplaceable roles played by women farmers in ensuring food security.
