To mark International Women’s Day 2018 (#IWD2018), FAO, IFAD and WFP are organizing an event that will focus on how media and ICTs can empower rural women and girls to transform their lives. The empowerment of rural women and girls is a central element in the drive to eradicate poverty and hunger, and to build inclusive and sustainable rural societies.
Leading specialists from the ICT sector will share testimonials of innovative interventions carried out by the Rome-based agencies and partners that have empowered women, strengthened rural livelihoods, and contributed to food and nutrition security.
- The event will take place on 8 March from 10:00 – 12:00 (Rome time).
