I am very happy to see that FAO has recently announced, that the publication “Gender and food loss in sustainable food value chains” has been translated and is now also available in French and Spanish. Let me start with the abstract in English. Further down you will find the links to the publications in the English, French and Spanish!
This publication aims to help policy-makers, project designers and field practitioners to conceptualize the nexus between gender equality and food loss while offering practical guidance on and tools for integrating gender concerns into the planning and implementation of food loss studies and reduction strategies and interventions.
By linking key concepts from gender-sensitive value chain development and the issue of food loss, it emerges that gender inequalities affect the overall efficiency of the food value chain and generate a poor performance that may cause produce to be removed from the chain. The publication provides critical information and entry points for food loss reduction interventions that improve the way women and men participate in and benefit from food production.
