Role of women and youth in food security and rural livelihood

Eugene Roy A and Deepika P

This study concentrates on the improvement of the household food security through the contribution of rural women. There is a strong relationship between food security and gender in our world. A gender approach to food security can enable shifts in gender power relations, policies and practices to improve food security and nutrition. Our world has committed to end hunger by 2030 by SDG goals. The only way to achieve this goal is by putting women and youth in the centre of the support and assistance. Women play a key role in food production and form a large proportion of the agricultural work force globally. In regard this study has indicated that women throughout the world play a crucial role in improving the household food security, as they contribute to food production, enhance dietary quality and consumption diversity. Therefore by findings of this paper major food policy implication can be implied by countries on food security through the help of rural women.
