In this booklet the Sustainable Economic Development Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs explains the bottlenecks women face in the production, preparation, processing and trading of food. The booklet also presents an overview of Dutch-funded organisations and projects focused on food security that are working to enhance the economic empowerment of women.
The publication starts by arguing that the first condition for sustainable food production is enhancing women’s land rights.
This publication is intended above all as an inspiration for policymakers in government, business and civil society who are working to foster sustainable food security.
