Les femmes et l’emploi rural - Lutter contre la pauvreté en redéfinissant les rôles propres à chaque genre


  • FAO Economic and Social Development Department


Environs trois quarts des pauvres à travers le monde vivent dans les zones rurales. Parmi eux, les femmes constituent un groupe particulièrement vulnérable et pourtant stratégique pour le développement économique et social. Investir au profit des femmes rurales ne répond alors plus seulement à un impératif moral; cela contribue aussi à définir une stratégie prometteuse en matière de lutte contre la pauvreté et contre la faim.
