GAZA FOODWAYS - TOWARDS RESILIENT WOMEN-LED URBAN AGROECOLOGICAL FOOD SYSTEMS

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This project aims to support a shift towards women-led agricultural research, practice and policy formulation for a just transition to diversified low-carbon urban farming systems and food sovereignty. As transdisciplinary research the project engages primarily with women producers and processors to articulate and frame their challenges, bringing them together with women-led research teams to stimulate knowledge co-creation for solution-building that amplifies their collective voices and results in a series of user-led innovations for urban agroecology. Working with and across Gazan universities, the project will promote participatory action research practice and strengthen capacity and skills for gender-transformative transdisciplinary curricula, developing a professional urban agroecology diploma. And it will establish supportive intersectorial actor-networks mobilised around strategic policy changes that connect up and strengthen policies for urban agroecology and food sovereignty in Gaza.
