"Women's proximity to nature is neither romantic nor ideological, it just is" van Walsum, Edith.

Women are providers for 80% of the households struggling for food security in the world. This research explores: How can the recovery of food traditions help to enhance native seed conservation, food security and healthy diets in bio-culturally diverse regions? A comparative study is proposed in Los Altos de Chiapas, Mexico and in Shillong, Meghalaya, India to achieve the following objectives: 1) To identify local elements of food traditions keeping agro-biodiversity and nutrition; 2) To analyze the relationship between self-consumption and cash crops at the household level; 3) To document local strategies for food security; 4) To develop a recipe book and workshop with young people and women to prepare traditional food while we reflect on the importance of native crops for their health and community. Results will provide data about the role of women as consumers, producers, and key players for food security and healthy diets, conservation of food traditions and bio-cultural heritage.
