Asia is home to the largest number of indigenous peoples on Earth, with an estimated 260 million of a total of 370 million original inhabitants worldwide.

“Indigenous women are key allies in the fight against hunger and malnutrition. They contribute to sustainable livelihoods as food producers, guardians of native seeds and custodians of traditional knowledge. Yet they are invisible, and their rights are not recognized nor protected’, added Naw Ei Ei Min, Karen Indigenous Woman from Myanmar.

The Global Campaign for the Empowerment of Indigenous Women for Zero Hunger, launched by FAO, FIMI and Notimia, aims at making indigenous women’s challenges and contributions visible as a necessary step to “leave no one behind” in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Agenda.
