What Role Can Agricultural Extension and Advisory Services Play in Realizing Gender Equality and Improved Nutrition?

FAO’s FSN forum is hosting an online discussion to reflect on the role that agricultural extension and advisory services (AEAS) can play in contributing to reducing gender inequalities and improving nutrition. The objective of this online discussion is to collect experiences, methodologies, and lessons learned around gender-sensitive and nutrition-enhancing AEAS practices from all over the world. The results of this discussion will inform the work of the newly-formed GFRAS Nutrition Working Group, which provides resources and effective coordination opportunities for practitioners and policy makers. The discussion will be open through July 9.
