Rural women are at the heart of the agricultural world. Yet many inequalities persist. Tshering Choden explains how IFAD is actively combatting these existing inequalities. On this note, Philippe Remy follows with captivating success stories from Malawi.

In Latin America, rural women’s leaders speak about closing the gender gap in decision-making. This month we’re also launching a new mini-series on the ACUA Programme with Ilse Loango from Colombia. Then we talk to Hadija Jabiri, founder of EatFresh, about empowering female farmers to address gender inequality, and to Judy Ling Wong, Honorary President of the Black Environmental Network, about the role of diversity in rural spaces. To wrap up this episode, Claire Somerville, Executive Director of the Gender Centre at the Geneva Graduate Institute, tells us about the disparities between gender and global health in rural communities.

This is Farms. Food. Future – a podcast that's Good for You, Good for the Planet and Good for Farmers brought to you by the International Fund for Agricultural Development.
