This year as we always do WiPSU joins the rest of the world to celebrate and commemorate the day of the rural women. With this years theme ' Rural women & girls building resilience' the world has seen the rural woman taking her stand and leading her community. In the midst of climate change and the COVID 19 pandemic the world has seen that women are indeed resilient in our very nature and possess the skills and knowledge to bring us out of our crisis. WiPSU continues to advocate for more women to hold leadership positions especially in key decision making positions. WiPSU joins the UN Women in calling for action to support rural women and girls to grow their capacities to respond to climate change through agricultural production, food security and natural resources management.
