This year, the UN Food Systems Summit calls for “bold actions to transform the way the world produces and consumes food” to advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Gender equality is a pre-condition for achieving these goals and generating sustainable and resilient agricultural and food systems. 

The online conference ‘Cultivating Equality: Advancing Gender Research in Agriculture and Food Systems’ focusses on research that helps understand and advance positive synergies among sustainable and resilient agricultural, rural and food systems, and equality in societies globally.


It addresses how marginalization and social exclusion are shaped at the intersection of gender with other social dimensions, such as socio-economic status, age or generation, ethnicity, or religion and belief systems, and the catalytic role gender research can play to help overcome such exclusions.


For a rich exchange of knowledge and perspectives, we welcome proposals for contributions form researchers, students, and other actors in every stage of their career, from across the globe and focusing on any continent. 


The conference is co-organized by
