Generation 2030: Women and Girls’ Education: The Overlooked Link for Achieving SDG 2 | SDG Knowledge Hub | IISD

Women’s lack of access to education creates barriers for their success in many arenas, including in agriculture. Research indicates that every additional year of education that a woman receives results in agricultural returns anywhere from 2 to 15 percent, and educated women are more likely to adopt new technologies. Investments in women’s education (and achieving SDG 4 and SDG 5) should be part of country and donor plans to achieve SDG 2.
