Women & Agriculture

Ce reportage montre  de la nécessité  d'accroître la production alimentaire dans le monde et note l'importance du rôle des  femmes pour ce  futur. Pour nourrir une population croissante nous avons besoin d'augmenter la production alimentaire de 70 pour cent avant 2050.

Les femmes représentent aujourd'hui la majorité de la main-d'œuvre agricole dans de nombreuses régions du monde ", l'avenir de la production alimentaire dépendra peut-être de la capacité des femmes à prendre le pouvoir...

A colleague mine thought that the ideas in this video were so obvious and non-controversial, he said, "Why does this even need to be stated? Why would we exclude women from agriculture?"  The simple answer is that it wouldn't need to be stated if women around the world did have equal access to resources.  For many of the world's poor, this is where the rubber meets the road.

Unit 5: Agriculture, Food Production and Rural Land Use 


This video is about how women make up the majority of the agricultural workforce and that giving them access to land, water, markets, and technology could increase food production by 30%. This in return would help boost the economy. Places such as Kenya have given women the same resources as men and have seen a 22% increase in crop production. In Brazil, programs targeting women in agriculture have helped cut the population in extreme poverty by half and malnutrition by 73%. This video encourages people around the world to help give women the resources they need in order to increase the food production and economy. 


This relates to unit 5 because it deals with agriculture and particularly women's roles in agriculture. This video explains how increased resources can help end world hunger. Women are not given as much opportunity as men and this video expresses need to invest in women's rights.
