Forum on Women’s Empowerment in the Context of Food Security and Nutrition

25 September 2017, 09:30 - 17.00 CEST
FAO, Red Room
Rome, Italy

The Forum on Women’s Empowerment in the context of Food Security and Nutrition will be held on 25 September 2017 at FAO in Rome to promote a shared understanding of how issues related to women’s economic empowerment in the context of food security and nutrition are evolving. The Forum will also contribute to promoting mutual accountability towards the full realization of women’s rights, achieving gender equality and women's empowerment for the attainment of all Sustainable Development Goals - especially SDG1, SDG2, SDG5, SDG8 and SDG17 - and strengthening synergies among these goals in policy and programme frameworks for countries.

Taking into account the recommendations of the policy roundtable on “Gender, Food Security and Nutrition” held at CFS 37 in 2011, the Forum is expected to lead to the identification of the challenges, gaps and barriers that hinder progress in women’s economic empowerment and the achievement of gender equality.

For more information and detailed programme of the Forum visit the CFS website.
