Poultry production: the gender dimension

20 January 2021

In the latest discussion in the One Health Poultry Hub Roadmap series, we invite you to discuss with us the role of women and men in raising poultry in a changing world. As production systems intensify, the role and remuneration of women tends to diminish. In countries where game fowl are raised, some men value their birds more than their families. What's really going on?

The panellists are:

  • Dr Clarisse Ingabire, livestock specialist at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
  • Dr I Made Setiawan, lecturer and researcher in the Public Health Department, Faculty of Medicine, Udayana University, Indonesia.

The session will be moderated by Professor Robyn Alders, Global Health Programme, Chatham House, UK.

The discussion will be hosted on Zoom. You will receive the link after registering.

A Q&A discussion will be included in the webinar. Further discussion will continue online following the event. Find out more on the event listing on Eventbrite.

About the Roadmap series

This series of discussions focuses on identifying and tackling key issues underpinning sustainable development from the perspective of one of the world’s most important industry contributors to nutrition security: the poultry industry.

Through robust exchanges between panellists and active audience engagement, we will develop a One Health Roadmap that seeks a destination where economic, social and environmental sustainability and justice are key indicators of success. We aim to weave together diverse One Health threads with the aim of identifying practical and equitable approaches to health security, food security and food systems, and justice in human, animal, and environmental health.

All videos from Roadmap Series events will be made available shortly after they take place on the One Health Poultry Hub website at onehealthpoultry.org/roadmap.
