Women in Agribusiness. A Look to the Future
13 October 2021
13:45—15:15
The evolution of technology in the agricultural sector is facilitating the establishment of modern enterprises, the forging of new partnerships, and the creation of entire ecosystems on the agricultural market. In particular, a systemic approach to selling products and services (including those related to transport and logistics) is taking shape. Throughout the world, leading experts are noting that a greater proportion of women are working in the industry. However, much of this work is centred around low-skilled manual labour, and there is an increasing need to fundamentally reform the agricultural sector. Development projects need to incorporate programmes for women. Increasing the number of women in agribusiness will facilitate growth across the industry, as well as the development of social infrastructure.

What areas of development in the agricultural sector might potentially offer particular benefit to women? What factors need to be considered first and foremost when creating new jobs for women in the agricultural sector? What areas of development in the agricultural sector should be prioritized? In which branches of agribusiness are there likely to be demand for new jobs as the industry develops? What educational programmes for women in agribusiness will help them become highly qualified specialists? What new opportunities are opening up for women as a consequence of the spread of digital technology in agriculture?
