Summary: 

"Women are the bedrock of food and nutrition security in their families," said WFP Deputy Executive Director Sheila Sisulu during an event at the COP17 Climate talks in Durban. "As much as 80% of food in the household in Africa is produced and prepared by women. If we bring women the right information and innovative technology, we can help them to ‘climate proof’ their work in the home and on the farm."
