Most of Africa’s food is produced by smallholder farmers, especially women farmers. Therefore, they are a leverage point for transforming agricultural practices and technologies to improve food and nutrition security, under prevailing climatic, political, social, and environmental conditions. However, these farmers are the most vulnerable to climate change and poverty, and for the women, they face additional gender inequalities and social exclusion. The objective of this dialogue is to discuss challenges and opportunities to ensure a sustainable food system in Africa and identify ways to strengthen women’s empowerment.
