Theme: Transforming Indigenous Women thru AgriBusiness

The topic directly relates to the United Nations Committee on the Status of Women’s 2018 emerging theme.   We aim at supporting gender equity and supporting indigenous peoples’ cultures, customary laws and institutions with AgriBusiness.  More than 50% of food grown worldwide is produce by women (including indigenous).  Promoting gender equality among indigenous woman can pose significant challenges.  Indigenous women suffer from a range of problems violation of their rights including, lack of participation in decision-making processes, control over income, land rights, access to education, harmful traditional practices, and domestic violence.  AgriBusiness directly impacts skills, resources, opportunity and motivation toward empowering indigenous women.  

Significantly, indigenous women remain untapped potential for sustainable development and drivers for poverty reduction with agribusiness.  Topical discussion areas:

POWER: Advancement of Agricultural Change Agents in Rural & Urban Communities

PASSION: Advocacy for Women’s Role in Agribusiness in Natural, Financial & Human Capital

POTENTIAL: Access to Women’s Ownership Rights to Land and Other Resources

PROFITABILITY: Agriculture + Business = Women in Sustainable Development
