A Rising Tide Does Not Lift All Boats: Transformative Approaches for Strengthening Resilience and Equity

Ranjitha Puskur

Agriculture and Development Notes, 2016, vol. 7, No 2, 2 pages

Abstract: As the world in general is experiencing real gross domestic product (GDP) growths and reduced poverty headcounts, there lies below several challenges in the form of hidden hunger, climate change vulnerabilities, and a growing inequality between the rich and poor, and among genders. The idea that general improvements in the economy benefit all participants is not necessarily true. Inequalities in opportunities for different socioeconomic groups influence the development outcomes and perpetuate poverty and vulnerability. A shift in the way gender and social issues are addressed in agriculture research and development policy and practice could result in transformational change that is profound, enduring, and irreversible, having deep and lasting impact on poverty alleviation.
