Closing the gaps: Public policy note for the inclusion of a gender and intercultural perspective in agriculture and rural development

The purpose of this note is to support dialogue to consider the gender equality approach and the cultural approach in policies for food security, productivity, and rural development. We explore elements that must be taken into account for the mainstreaming of rural and indigenous women to rural development in the context of not leaving anyone behind, starting from the specific conditions of the Mexican countryside.

This note has been produced within the framework of the strategic partnership between the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), which work together at the global and national levels to maximize results and sustainably support countries in combating hunger, malnutrition and poverty. The shared vision is to promote global food security for all.
