I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women's Rights

For International Women's Day 2020, the CGIAR GENDER Platform proposes a campaign that makes the case for why gender equality is vital to achieving sustainable, productive and climate-resilient food systems. We want to show that gender equality is a prerequisite to achieving the proposed One CGIAR vision of ending hunger by 2030.

How can you be involved?

Because we want to talk about gender equality in a way that people can understand and can use, we are asking CGIAR centers/programs/platforms to share stories on why gender equality matters for food systems.

On social media, we are hoping to prompt a participatory campaign, in which all CGIAR colleagues and partners can share experiences of their own. This campaign will complement the UN theme and yearlong campaign – "I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights”.
