Event Details

Food and nutrition insecurity remain critical problems in the Global South, with nearly two billion people suffering from micronutrient deficiency. Food insecurity, especially seasonal food insecurity, is likely to grow among people directly dependent on natural resources as climatic shocks become more frequent and severe. Income diversity, or having multiple streams of revenue, is an adaptation strategy that researchers and development agencies laud as a way to mitigate risk and smooth consumption. Women are often targeted as beneficiaries of income diversity programs because they are characterized as “the key” to food security.
