African Women in Agriculture
Over 60 percent of women in Sub-Saharan Africa work in the agricultural sector. Yet they have restricted access to land, capital, and agricultural input. As a result, women are more likely to experience poverty and food insecurity despite their contributions. For women to participate in the development of climate change solutions, we must ensure women farmers have equal access to opportunities, land resources and finances. Furthermore, environmental programs should target and empower women to learn more about sustainable ways to manage their farms. Introducing topics like compost making, agroforestry, integrated pest management techniques, and regenerative agriculture will help farmers improve their yields and build resilience.
