Social Protection: gender equality and the role of women in fighting hunger

The Centre of Excellence against Hunger has developed videos about its work in the area of social protection. In this video, the focus is on gender equality and the role of women in fighting hunger.

According to surveys, eliminating inequalities between women and men farmers would increase agricultural production in developing countries and reduce the number of hungry people by 100 million. It is necessary to make the opportunities of women in the labor market and their wages equal to those of men, so that they do not become more vulnerable to poverty and contribute to sustainable development and to Zero Hunger.
