Our conference on “Food and Gender Implications in Global Food Systems” will be hosted by  MEP Louis Michel, Member of European Parliament and President of the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly. The conference will be on the 5th of November 2015,9-1pm at Altiero  Spinelli  A3G-2 European Parliament  Brussels.

We intend to bring together academics, Ngos, development policy makers and community based organizations to discuss the implications of gender roles in global food insecurity. This year, the global development community and all international actors will meet in September to define the Post-2015 Development Agenda. They will meet again in December in Paris for the global Summit on Climate Change (COP 21) to discuss the impact of climate change on our environment. The fact that climate change impacts heavily on food production and food security, is evident around the globe.                                    

 

Yet the attendant consequences of climate change and the severity of its implications on food security of communities in the developing world is influenced by gender roles. Hence, hosting a conference prior to the COP 21 is important to keep the dialogue current and on-going and give a voice to small development actors.
The speakers from the academia, Ngos and community based organizations will present papers on gendered roles in food systems, especially who does what on farms, why gender matters in food security, gender inequality in the food system, poverty, land management, climate change, and the wider current challenges as related to the conference theme. We also invited papers examining governmental and global policies on gender as related to food security and hunger. Join us to highlight the relevance of gender in the fight against food insecurity. For registration and  inquiries contact
