Description

In South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, over 60% of women are engaged in agriculture, but climate change threatens their source of food and income. Women perform upto 80% of agricultural activities, yet their role is usually not recognized. However, their contribution is vital in reducing poverty and developing communities.
