Gender-inclusive innovations for aquatic food systems transformation
- Impact Area
Growing evidence points to gender equality playing a key role in aquatic food systems’ contributions to achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 5: Empowering all women and girls. However, despite recent progress in advancing gender equality, inequity and barriers are still persistent throughout aquatic food supply chains.
In a Fish4Thought virtual event held in conjunction with International Women’s Day, WorldFish’s research experts thus came together to highlight gender-sensitive approaches and innovations that can better empower women in fisheries and aquaculture and ensure benefits derived from the sector are equally shared amongst men, women and youth.
