EdiCitNet Global Lunch Talk #3: Applying and Intersectional Gender Lens in Urban Food Systems Planning
March 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Gender and our food system are inextricably linked. As well as there being barriers to participation in food value chains due to socially determined identities, roles, rights and obligations of women and men, there are also structural inequalities embedded in the system.
The majority of the work carried out to address gender inequalities in the food system has so far focused on rural areas, but there are also gendered disparities in urban food systems, which have remained neglected by those people involved in urban planning.
In this EdiCitNet Lunch Talk, Dr Jess Halliday, Senior Associate RUAF Global Partnership on Sustainable Urban Agriculture and Food Systems talks about the challenges and potentials of applying an intersectional gender lens in urban food systems planning, as well as showcasing some best practice examples from around the world.
