Gender gaps are widening across all continents and sectors, including agriculture. Although rural women are productive members of their families and societies, their voices are always marginalized: they are not involved in decision-making related to family life, community issues, money, or business. This analytical paper was prepared by UN Women Lebanon. It aims to examine the extent to which the Lebanese legislation and policy frameworks take into account gender diversity and women’s equitable and safe economic participation in the agricultural sector and the agro-food industries.

In 2021, Alert, with the support of UN Women, conducted a gender-sensitive conflict analysis, zooming in on Tripoli and Bekaa, with generous funding from the Government of UK. This analysis has demonstrated how unresolved issues from the past, and particularly the civil war, are compromising peace and reconciliation processes and limiting women’s central role in these processes. It also found that women, young women, and young men coming from lower socioeconomic classes and peripheral areas are distinctly disenfranchised from meaningful participation in peace and security. Furthermore, gender, class, age, and nationality continue to be points of division & tension among communities in Lebanon that are often triggered by memories from the civil war. Thus, hindering cross-community and intergenerational dialogue exchanges and the capacities of women to lead community groups to build bridges across divides and work towards a collective peace memory.
