Bridging the Digital Gender Gap

In this podcast we look at International Women’s Day 2023, which explores the impact of the digital gender gap, speaking to IFAD's Ndaya Beltchika. We also talk to ecommerce professional, Shelley Burich, from Samoa, and Elsie Du Bray from the Lakota Nation in North America about food sovereignty.

We hear about the latest on the ever changing donor landscape with IFAD's Ron Hartman. Then, as he hits the winter season, we check in for the next instalment of Max Cotton’s voyage of self-sufficiency in the UK. And we finish off with a new episode in our Bangladesh climate change series. Plus we find out more from a young female indigenous persons activist in Colombia.
