Lack of Access to water and food does not always mean lack of availability.
Water and food are often available but access is either lacking or underutilized. The key is in understanding how women as primary caregivers for their families are uniquely placed to create and manage better systems and solutions to improve the infrastructure needed to supply water and food.
According to the World Food Program, providing women farmers with access to the same resources as men could reduce the number of hungry people by as much as 100 to 150 million.
Lack of access to water and sanitation affects over 750 million people. Globally women spend over 200 million hours a day fetching water. Giving women a seat at the table in the design and implementation of delivery systems provides dramatic improvement for communities.
