Intl Year of Family Farming

The 2014 International Year of Family Farming (IYFF) aims to raise the profile of family farming and smallholder farming by focusing world attention on its significant role in alleviating hunger and poverty, providing food security and nutrition, improving livelihoods, managing natural resources, protecting the environment, and achieving sustainable development, in particular in rural areas. 

Why is Family Farming Important?

  • Family and small-scale farming are inextricably linked to world food security.
  • Family farming preserves traditional food products, while contributing to a balanced diet and safeguarding the world’s agro-biodiversity and the sustainable use of natural resources.
  • Family farming represents an opportunity to boost local economies, especially when combined with specific policies aimed at social protection and well-being of communities.

The International Year of Family Farming 2014 will be officially launched on 22 November 2013, at UN Headquarters in New York, from 3 to 5:00 pm.

For more information, please contact the IYFF Secretariat at Family-farming-2014@fao.org

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) leads international efforts to defeat hunger.

Our vision is a world free of hunger and malnutrition where food and agriculture contributes to improving the living standards of all, especially the poorest, in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner.

Family Farming is a vital component in our mission "for a world without hunger". Join us on the 22nd November to help raise the profile of #IYFF14.
