// Food Systems and Gender
The Florence Annual General Assembly is themed 'Food Systems and Gender - Women's empowerment for food security and nutrition.' This emphasis on the fundamental role of women is because of their central role as smallholders in food and nutrition security as well as their contribution as entrepreneurs, development agents and policy makers. The AGA will be hosted by MFAIC-Italy.
The second day is a members only day, where Platform members discuss how to translate the acquired knowledge and the previous day’s results into policy and investment improvements as well as practical measures and actions.
