    Hello Mr. Onditi,
    Thank you for a wonderful blog article , i would further go on to appreciate your incorporation of gender issues in your article. Taking into consideration of our country’s economy at the moment, I would like to put forward a little addition by recognizing the high pricing of food in the markets in which climate change at some percentage is also contributing.
    But also, taking point of food storage in the warehouses, we having stocks of stored food destroyed due to variable weather patterns and extreme climate related events.

      It is quite true Linda, that women are differently affected by the impacts of climate in different aspects, contexts, and locations. The price of food is clear that it affects the accessibility, hence hindering fulfillment of food preferences and nutritional requirements. On destroyed food in non-climate compatible warehouses is a challenge that needs special attention, based on the efforts to reduce post-harvest losses. This is simply considering Climate change in infrastructure development on food and other essential needs.
