Why Women Matter

Is the food crisis made worse because of gender inequalities in agriculture? Is the market failing or is the global community failing women farmers? Given the uncertain economic outlook, why should the global community invest in women in agriculture? In this global food crisis, the Gender in Agriculture Sourcebook, the culmination of three years of research led jointly by the World Bank, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, and the International Fund for Agricultural Development, confronts the reality that global gender inequalities result in less food being grown, less income being earned, higher levels of poverty, and greater food insecurity. The Sourcebook provides both evidence of progress made towards effectively integrating women into agricultural programs and presents solid recommendations for policy makers to guide their investments in gender programming.
