In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021 and Open Data Day 2021, Global Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and Unique Mappers Team are teaming up, bringing together these two topics and exploring gender equality in data technologies in West Africa.
The digital transformation of the agricultural sector, through the proliferation of digital technologies, tools and services has only served to exacerbate preexisting inequalities. While challenges such as access to education, access to financial services, connectivity, availability of electricity and cost of essential services only serve to widen the gender data gap.
Empowerment of women would not only empower individuals, increasing their earnings; but would also serve to empower families and entire farming communities, and partnership is a key factor to effectuating that change.
The following webinars will take place:
ACHIEVING ZERO HUNGER THROUGH GENDER DATA EQUALITY – SATURDAY MARCH 6, 2021 (11H00-12H00 UTC/ 12H00-13H00 WAT)
