dc.description.abstractThis document introduces a global view of the status of women and women's contributions as being the majority of food producers, the majority of food providers, and women do the majority of food preparation for their families. Rural people are the poorest, and most vulnerable to food insecurity. Capacity to increase production, particularly to the most needed exist. Constraints and characteristics of agriculture and food security vary from region to region. "Gender blindness" and "invisibility" of women's roles and ways they can contribute to food security are major constraints to food security. This document presents a global overview of food security, as well as specific to each continent and its regional trends.
