She is in charge of UNIFEM activities in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh & Nepal. She said UNIFEM’s objective is to promote gender equality & make women self dependent. UNIFEM also has programmes for women in their fight against AIDS. She said United Nations Development Fund was also looking into the impact of climate change on women farmers. “About 90 percent of food production is done by women”. She remarked.
