FAO's Comparative advantage
FAO's Comparative advantage in addressing gender issues in agriculture VC development
FAO comparative advantage: As the United Nations lead agency for agriculture and rural development, FAO has a clear comparative advantage in addressing gender issues in agriculture and in rural settings. For decades, FAO has championed the contribution of women to food production and food security, and spearheaded efforts to remove the barriers that limit their opportunities, and the full enjoyment of their rights. The Organization’s wide-ranging expertise covering all aspects of value chain development, combined with its vast track record in gender equality in agriculture and rural development, paves the way for major contributions in the areas of women’s empowerment and efficient value chain development to combat rural poverty and world hunger.
