The UN has declared 2014 the International Year of Family Farming (IYFF). The goal is to raise the profile of smallholders and family farms by focusing world attention on their role in alleviating hunger and poverty. Improving conditions for smallholders and family farms are central goals of the IYFF.
To mark the IYFF, a national Swiss committee composed of agriculture and development cooperation representatives has been established in Switzerland. The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) has an observer status in the committee.
