Governments have been challenge to think and act on the needs of rural women. Emily Chali from rural women organization said they are participating at the Rio +20 because they want the voices of the rural women to be heard. Emily said the voice of a rural woman world over is not heard.
She said the aim of their participation at the summit is to strengthen their voices as rural women and that their needs should be addressed.
Emily said the issue of sustainable development has been talked about for so long time since agenda 21 in 1992 but nothing has been done up to date. She said rural women have been sustaining themselves since time in memorial and hoped that the world leaders talked about sustainable livelihood and implementing the developments they have been talking about.
Emily said she hopes the leaders will review what they have done in the last 20 yrs and find the next step. She said rural women need to be recognized and not marginalized because they come from rural areas. She said it is not fair to regard a rural woman as inferior because they have managed to live sustainable and profitable life for many years.
She said time to have everything emposed on a rural woman is long gone because they have better solutions to many problems than anyone else and that their development is on the ground than on what is being said which is just on paper. She was speaking in an exclusive interview with flame da Afrique at the ongoing Rio+20 summit in Brazil.
