Soaring global food prices are increasing hunger and the burden of the poor, of whom women compose the majority around the world. Women also constitute the majority of the world's farmers who are primarily responsible for their household's food security. This event will examine the gender dimensions of food insecurity, with a special focus on Kenya, Haiti and IFIs.
