The Covid-19 pandemic has led to severe food insecurity with impacts on households expected to continue into 2022. Across the Indo-Pacific we need to understand how the Covid-19 pandemic, especially the 2021 Delta wave, affected different communities responsible for food production and market sales. Small scale farming and vendor enterprises, often led by women, are vital for community-level food security and resilience. The Australian Centre for International Agriculture Reserarch is funding this research into the gendered impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on small scale farmers and vendors in the Indo-Pacific with the Griffith University and the Gender and Covid-19 Research Group.
In this webinar, Griffith University researchers, Sara Davies and Robin Roberts, have a conversation with partner research team members from Myanmar, Philippines, and Papua New Guinea, about the gendered impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on local food and agricultural sectors in their communities. This webinar will detail country-level experiences of research data collection during the Delta wave, insight into the lived experiences of women farmers and vendors, and consider next steps to support women's economic recovery in the food and agricultural sector to achieve food security.
