Women are pivotal actors in the transformation of Mediterranean food systems towards greater sustainability. To realize this vision, it is essential to address the deep-rooted gender inequalities and structural barriers that women face, and to ensure their active participation in policy and decision-making processes. By doing so, we can harness the expertise, contributions, and leadership of women to create a more environmentally responsible and resilient food system in the Mediterranean region.
We invite you to explore the full outcomes document for a comprehensive overview of the insights and recommendations shared during our webinar. Together, we can work towards a more equitable and sustainable future for Mediterranean food systems.
