Tapping on agriculture and climate resources to finance women farmers

Ahead of the UNFCCC COP23 in Bonn, the Donor Platform invited different ARD practitioners to a webinar to learn and discuss about a recent Oxfam report on finance to women farmers.

The report looked at whether and to what extent women are obtaining adequate support for farming and adapting to climate change. Oxfam conducted research on government and donor investments in Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines and Tanzania. Results showed that funding in these countries were significantly lower than commitments that have been made, and there was little evidence of resources and technical assistance reaching women farmers. Resources are being diverted to priorities other than smallholder farmers, and for the most part governments lack the capacity to deliver funding to them.


Financing Women Farmers

The Webinar included a presentation by Oxfam followed by a discussion with participants. Speakers: Rebecca Pearl-Martinez (author of the report, specialist in gender & climate governance) and Eric Muñoz (Agricultural Investments lead at Oxfam America).
