ONE | INFOGRAPHIC: Closing the gender gap in land rights

ONE | INFOGRAPHIC: Closing the gender gap in land rights | green infographics | Scoop.it

Although women play an indispensable role in the rural economy, they face severe constraints in accessing the agricultural assets and services they need to maximize their production. It has become increasingly clear that there is a “gender gap” in resources such as land, technology, and extension services; that the gap imposes costs not only on women but also on the broader economy and society; and that closing the gap would improve agricultural productivity and reduce hunger and poverty. Oft-cited statistics from a recent FAO report focus on the gains that could be made if women had equal access to non-land resources. In light of evidence that secure rights to land for women can increase agricultural productivity and confer other household benefits, we at Landesa think it is critical to consider what additional gains could be made if women had equal access to one of the most important assets to agricultural households: land.

No Kid Hungry: Campaign to End Childhood Hunger

No Kid Hungry: Campaign to End Childhood Hunger | green infographics | Scoop.it
The thought of children going to sleep hungry anywhere in the world is tough to swallow.

People may think that hunger is a problem which resides firmly in the hands of third world countries — but they’re mistaken. America has a problem too. America has the food and programs in place to end childhood hunger, but they are up against a lot: the stigmas and embarrassments that surround hunger, the challenges presented by access to healthy food, and the struggle to connect children with the resources they need to thrive.
In 1983, actor Jeff Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world. It works with the entertainment industry and partners to produce and support media projects to end U.S. childhood hunger. They have recently partnered with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry national campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. This newly formed partnership will help make this goal even more attainable...
