Food Security, Productivity, and Gender Inequality
Working Papers from eSocialSciences
This paper examines the relationship between gender inequality and food security, with a particular focus on women as food producers, consumers, and family food managers. The discussion is set against the backdrop of rising and volatile food prices, the vulnerabilities created by regional concentrations of food production, imports and exports, the feminisation of agriculture, and the projected effect of climate change on crop yields. It outlines the constraints women face as farmers in terms of their access to land, credit, production inputs, technology, and markets.
