Agriculture ministry integrates gender equality into planning


The caretaker minister of agriculture, Abbas Mortada, announced the agriculture sector strategy for 2020-2025 in observance of gender equality through all its programs. This requires the integration of the notion of equality within the ministry’s structure. To this effect, four women liaison officers were appointed within the Ministry’s Directorate, the Directorate of Cooperatives, the Research Authority and the Green Plan, with the aim to coordinate with the National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) and form an action coordination cell that provides support and contributes to drafting national and international reports. Mortada was speaking at a dialogue meeting on the rights of women and gender equality, as well as promoting gender equality in the strategy and programs of the ministry. He stressed the continuance of similar meetings in the agriculture and food sectors with the purpose of accommodating the activities, projects and budgets of the ministry with the needs of all beneficiaries of its services, men and women. Meetings, he maintained, shall continue with the employees in the Central Administration and various regional departments to the end of strengthening the capacities of state workers and training trainers on gender equality principles in rural and agricultural areas.
