Women in agriculture: Four myths
Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 on gender equality and women’s rights and at least 11 of the 17 SDGs require indicators related to gender dynamics. Despite the need for reliable indicators, stylized facts on women, agriculture, and the environment persist. During this webinar we will focus on four gender myths:
- 70% of the world’s poor are women;
- Women produce 60 to 80% of the world’s food;
- Women own 1% of the world’s land; and
- Women are better stewards of the environment.
