The United Nations’ (UN) International Day of Rural Women celebrates and honours the role of rural women on October 15 each year. It recognizes rural women’s importance in enhancing agricultural and rural development worldwide.
Rural women and girls are leaders in agriculture, food security and nutrition, land, natural resource management and unpaid and domestic care work. They are at the frontline when natural resources and agriculture are threatened. It is time we recognize the immense role played by rural women and girls and grow their capacities to respond to climate change through agricultural production, food security, and natural resources management.
Happy international Day of Rural Women in Ghana and all over the world, Kudos!!
