Gender equality and the integration of youth in agricultural and rural development processes are fundamental and extremely important issues.

This cross-cutting issue aims to ensure the full participation of women and youth, providing them with equal opportunities and empowering them in all roles, in keeping with the provisions of the SDGs. The goal is to harness their potential and to contribute to development processes that will improve their standard of living and that of their families and communities.
