Consultation for the development of the CFS Voluntary Guidelines
The George Institute for Global Health is pleased to contribute to the Consultation for the development of the CFS Voluntary Guidelines on Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment in the Context of Food Security and Nutrition.
The George Institute believe the Zero Draft is an important step in moving towards more equitable outcomes for women and girls.
To strengthen the Zero Draft, The George Institute has made a number of recommendations, including:
- An emphasis on nutrition for women and girls throughout the life-course
- The promotion of policies that support the ongoing recognition of women in the workforce and agricultural production
- Better inclusion of data
