FoodLAND joins the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

In the framework of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, FoodLAND collected statements from female project members working in research for young women who dream of working in science and research.

FoodLAND Processing

The technological research for primary and secondary processing in FoodLAND is focused on the development and implementation of innovations in relevant Food Hubs by involving farmers and processors.

FoodLAND Gender equality

Gender equality is one of FoodLAND’s guiding principles, which means that our actions should enhance gender equality. To ensure this vision throughout the project, a Gender Mainstreaming Board was created.

FoodLAND Production

Several technological innovations (including new tools, processes and products) are being developed, adapted and validated together with local smallholder farmers and processors, both for farming systems and for food processing systems.

FoodLAND’s Food Hubs

FoodLAND’s 12 Food Hubs spread across the five African countries bring together a community of local operators who aim to share R&D decisions and enable the adoption of innovations.

FoodLAND’s work in the aquaculture field

FoodLAND is implementing the most advanced aquaculture technologies in Tanzania and Kenya with simple, low investment methods to achieve a break-through in rural and peri-urban fish farming.

FoodLAND Gender Mainstreaming Board

The Gender Mainstreaming Board was created to guide the FoodLAND project towards the goal of equality between men and women. This board is made up of women from the six African countries involved in the project and it’s coordinated by Elhuyar.
