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?
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.

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.
