Prólogo

El presente Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2016, dedicado a la igualdad de género, toma el relevo del Informe sobre Desarrollo Humano en África 2012, en el que se analizaba la importancia de garantizar la seguridad alimentaria de todos los africanos.

Los dos han sido reconocidos como prioridades importantes para los Gobiernos y los ciudadanos de los países africanos.

Les disparités entre les genres coûtent quelque 95 milliards de dollars US par an en moyenne à l’Afrique subsaharienne et ont culminé à 105 milliards de dollars de pertes en 2014 (soit 6 % du PIB régional), compromettant de ce fait les efforts du continent en faveur d’un développement humain et d’une croissance économique inclusifs, indique le Rapport.

Gender equality is a matter of social justice. It is of particular importance when it comes to rural development due to the repercussions on food security. In its seminal report of 2011 the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO)1 estimated that if women had the same access to resources as men their total production would increase by 20% to 30%. This would mean a reduction of 12% to 17% in the number of persons suffering from hunger worldwide.
