Published : November 2020
This document presents key messages from the debate on gender and food security, drawing on an online discussion on the Wikigender platform and a DevTalk debate, organised by the Sahel and West Africa Club Secretariat (SWAC) and the OECD Development Centre. The discussion, “Towards a Gender-Responsive Approach to Food and Nutrition Security in the Sahel and West Africa”, focused on three key issues: i) the importance of gender in addressing food and nutrition insecurity, ii) best practices around food and nutrition security (FNS) programming, and iii) what is needed to engage decisionmakers and amplify women’s voices. Many RPCA members participated in the debate.
