Digging deeper into gender and equity at ANH Academy Week

At this year’s Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy Week  held in Hyderabad, India in June, 350 representatives from 33 countries came together to discuss the challenges of improving agriculture, nutrition, and health around the world.

Gender and equity were persistent themes across the conference’s oral presentations, posters, learning labs and side events. A set of empowerment-focused learning labs focused on tools for measuring women’s empowerment in agriculture and nutrition. Several presentations delved into the associations between gender, diets and nutrition.
