As the UN-wide theme for IWD 2017 is “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50:50 by 2030”, the event will pay particular attention to women’s work and employment as key components of the fight against hunger, malnutrition and rural poverty. It will highlight forward-looking solutions and present examples of the work of the Rome-based Agencies in support of rural women in food systems and agricultural value chains.

A key note speaker and panelists will share their thoughts on the changing world of work and the implications for women, both in rural and urban settings.
