This publication analyzes gender inequalities that constrain women’s roles in agriculture and food production, and in the long run undermine achievement of food and nutrition security in the Asia and Pacific region. It recommends priority interventions that would enhance food and nutrition security in the region by ending gender discrimination and empowering women. It argues for policy reforms to advance gender equality and strengthen country-owned food security strategies. Social protection policies that address the structural causes of poverty and vulnerability are strongly recommended, as are policies that improve women’s access to agricultural production resources and services, and to decent wage employment.
