Identifying the gaps

There is a recent global push toward transforming our current food system to deliver equity, environmental, and nutrition outcomes. Food system refers to all processes and systems involved in food production, transportation, distribution, consumption, and disposal. Food system transformation cannot be achieved without centering equity, especially gender equity, in all its components. Mapping gender-food system research across disciplines will provide a holistic framework for understanding gender roles in the food system and identify critical research and policy gaps.
