Integrating Gender Roles, Social Equity and Post Harvest Management Policies to Improve Rural Household’s Food Security

This policy brief describes the current status of policies and programs in Benin and Mozambique, with the aim of identifying potential gender and social sensitive post-harvest initiatives, thereby supporting their transition to a more sustainable and inclusive food security economy. Based on the analysis of the post-harvest policy status of the two countries, the report identifies a variety of reform opportunities, including the restructuring of post-harvest, gender and social equity policies; and provision of incentives across key sectors to support the development of food security system.
