Women are advocating for a voice at the table

As a farmer herself, Lavinia knows the importance of having a voice at the table.

She notes that farmer organisations play a crucial role in ensuring that issues that are important to smallholder farmers are voiced collectively.

Lavinia works for the Pacific Islands Farmer Organisations, which empowers livelihoods for rural households across the Pacific Islands region.
