Women: Key to Achieving Food and Nutrition Security in Cambodia E-mail

 

n honour of the farming families feeding Cambodia, FAO, WFP and UN Women released jointly a short film titled “Women: key to achieving food and nutrition security in Cambodia” on the contribution of Cambodian female farmers. The 2.5 minute film is part of a larger effort to raise awareness on the role of women in achieving “zero hunger” and food security in Cambodia. Cambodian rural women are involved in every aspect of the food chain, from agricultural production to post-harvesting processing and marketing. They are also central to family food security and nutrition, as they are generally responsible for food selection and preparation and for the care and feeding of their children. They raise and care for domestic animals, collect fuel, wood and drinking water. In food markets, women are the predominant sellers while men are the hunters, catchers, and planters.

The founding of the United Nations was a solemn pledge to the world’s people to end such assaults on human dignity, and lead the way to a better future. There have been painful setbacks, and there is much work ahead to realize the Charter’s vision. But we can take heart from our achievements.
