Why include gender in the fight against hunger?



Including gender helps to better understand differences in access to and control of resources, and to identify the specific needs of the women, girls, boys and men with whom we work.



WEBINAR: Gender and our mandate, with Michael Arnaud (Deputy Director, Gender & GBV)

Watch the webinar below


The objective of this webinar is to better understand what is our role in promoting gender equality and mitigating and preventing GBV – to answer these questions we will specifically look at gender equality in our sectors of intervention – WASH, FSL and Nutrition. We will also review the Action Against Hunger network’s strategy to promote gender equality, the work of the Gender Unit, and the Gender Minimum Standards.
