Food on All Tables: Promoting access to food for all and its impact on women’s health and rights

You’re invited to attend Food on All Tables: Promoting access to food for all and its impact on women’s health and rights

This event will discuss how climate change impacts the rights to food and health for women and girls, and how those impacts can be mitigated and addressed to ensure food on all tables.

Hunger and malnutrition are huge deterrents to fundamental physical and mental health which impact multiple generations. Consistently on the rise since 2015, today two billion people suffer from hunger or malnutrition. In many low-and middle-income countries, people who make their living in the food system; farmers, processors, cooks, and vendors, the majority of whom are women, struggle to address the rising challenges of food insecurity and hunger. Climate change has severely impacted agriculture and is largely responsible for this insufficiency.

Women are more vulnerable than men to food insecurity. In times of crisis, when food prices rise and food is scarce, women and girls consume less food and receive less nourishment in order to feed their families. Rural women face greater constraints than men in accessing land, technology, markets, infrastructure and services. Evidence shows that when rural women have the same access as men to productive resources, services and economic opportunities, there is a significant increase in agricultural output and immediate and long term social and economic gains.

This event is organized by the Climate Change and Health Task Force of the NGO Committee on the Status of Women Geneva (NGO CSW Geneva).

Date: 22 March 2022
