This year’s UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) has as its priority theme ‘Challenges and Opportunities in Achieving Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Rural Women and Girls’.
In this context, this parallel event at the NGO CSW Forum will explore the gendered impacts of the increasing commercialization of agriculture and land. Using a series of insights drawn from recent research carried out in rural Cambodia and Ghana, the aim of the discussion is to examine the accessibility and availability of food and land, paid and unpaid forms of labour, gender-based violence against women and shifting food cultures.

This public conference will discuss the implementation of the UN Declaration on the rights of peasants in Europe and its contribution to the SDGs and the UN Decade of Family Farming.
