Working towards Gender-Just Food and Nutrition Security in India


The intersections between gender, food security and climate change are quickly emerging to be nascent issues in the adaptation debate. Even with an emphasis on gender neutral and progressive economic reforms across the developing world, women continue to remain the most at risk in terms of food security.

In the South Asian context, coupled with conservative social norms, this risk is further increased due to women being limited in all spheres of socio-economic activity. UEA, UK in collaboration with International Food Policy Research Institute, organized a workshop on Gender Just Food and Nutrition Security. With a current push on various sectoral reforms in India by the reigning government, HI-AWARE’s presence at such a workshop was important.
