Calling All Aspiring Women Entrepreneurs! Join the Climate Certificate in Resilient Food Systems

Small island developing states are highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which can cause considerable damage to food systems, and in turn, to the ability of people to access safe, affordable food. For a country like the Maldives where ninety percent of food is imported, this type of food insecurity affects the most vulnerable members of population, particularly marginalized women and children.

Resilience is an essential attribute for a healthy food system. A resilient food system can be achieved by adopting nature-positive and sustainable approaches to innovate food systems for positive social and environmental impacts.
