Message 5: “Gender and youth issues must be considered in the discussion on agriculture under SBSTA. Gender and youth are currently mentioned under the Preamble section of the draft Agreement, but given the cross cutting nature of both topics, these cannot be limited to a Preamble. Mentions of gender under the Preamble of the draft Agreement is welcomed, but should also be woven in through the negotiating text itself.”
