The event is sponsored by a powerhouse combination of FAO, IFAD, WFP, and UN-Women, and will feature speakers such as the Deputy Permanent Rep of Norway, May-Elin Stener, IFAD’s Lead Technical Specialist on Gender and Social Inclusion, and others from Liberia and Kyrgyzstan. Join members of the Working Group at this event for an important discussion.
