Gender and Food Security in a Fair, Green Economy?
Abstract:Kiah Smith argues that multiple understandings or values of ‘food security’ exist for women smallholder farmers in Kenya, in parallel to those currently embedded in global ethical sourcing standards. She suggests a better understanding of the connection between local livelihoods and global structures of production, trade and consumption is needed if ethical sourcing is to address equity, social justice and poverty eradication in the future.
