Solutions for Empowering Women’s Engagement in Aquatic Food Systems:
a Journey Through the Supply Chain
Tuesday 11th October 2022 at 08:30 – 09:45 AM (GMT +2)
Green Room, FAO Headquarter, Rome/Zoom
This side-event, hosted by the Global Action Network for Sustainable Food from the Oceans and Inland Waters for Food Security and Nutrition will showcase solutions to empower women and engage young women in sustainable aquatic food systems. It will include success stories related to important steps for achieving food security (access to sufficient, safe, nutritious foods meeting dietary needs and food preferences). The event will include speakers from the entire aquatic food chain – ‘from healthy waters to healthy people’.
The event will be an ‘all women event’ with only female speakers, including young voices. The event will promote the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture 2022, and thus focus on small-scale and artisanal aquatic food providers.
