CFS Side event: Gender Equality & Malnutrition Transformation:
approaches to addressing causes & improved nutrition 
Friday 18 October
8.30 - 10.00 (CEST), broadcast from Rome
Join via SKYPE: HERE

Over the past 15 years, Gender Transformative Approaches (GTAs) have become prominent in rural development strategies. These approaches address the root causes of rural gender inequalities, in order to improve food security and nutrition and increase agricultural production in a sustainable manner, while also contributing to economic growth. GTAs offer an alternative to the “business as usual” approach to gender integration.
The event will feature a woman farmer from Guruve, Zimbabwe leading the discussions and sharing her own experiences; experts will also introduce new innovative frameworks and good practices to address the gender-based causes of food insecurity and malnutrition.
Initiatives introduced:

·         Gender Transformative Framework for Addressing Malnutrition and Gender Inequality
·         Gender Equality for Food Security Measure survey module that will explore the relationship between gender equality and food security as experienced by individuals.
·         A focus on scaling up gender transformative approaches to eradicate hunger, end poverty and promote sustainable agriculture
