Build more resilient food systems with the University of the West Indies

Gender equality, climate action and zero hunger are three of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. On this two-week course from the University of the West Indies, you’ll explore the interconnections between these three goals.

Guided by a team of gender and environment experts, you’ll learn why gender matters when fighting climate change, what gender roles operate within food systems, and how food insecurity relates to climate justice.

Consider climate justice and food systems resilience through the lens of gender

You’ll start the course by exploring where issues of gender, climate, and food security overlap or intersect.

You’ll review the relevant Sustainable Development Goals, and discuss all three through the lens of gender.

Take a gender transformative approach to climate action and food justice

In Week 2 of the course, you’ll investigate what it means to take a gender transformative approach (GTA) to issues of global significance.

You’ll examine some real-world examples of gender transformative approaches to combating climate change and food insecurity, and consider ways of harnessing this potential to protect global populations.

You’ll finish the course ready to champion sustainable development by tackling injustices relating to gender, the environment, and food insecurity.

This course is designed for anyone interested in learning more about the interconnections of gender studies, climate justice, and food systems resilience.

It is particularly aimed at actors working in and around food systems, or in government, policy, agriculture, social services, research, or civil society.
