Further to the global consultation launched to collect information on the activities and processes carried out in the framework of the UN Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 (UNDFF), the UNDFF Joint Secretariat organised this 2-day event..
The event aimed to:
- Complement information gathered during the data collection exercise for reporting on the results of the first biennium;
- Discuss good practices, successful experiences and concrete policy solutions implemented for the support of family farming, which have emerged since launching the UNDFF;
- Identify emerging successful approaches, experiences and policy solutions to scale-up and scale-out the support to family farming in the coming years of the UNDFF and beyond;
- Highlight the key emerging policy/technical solutions for family farming and reflect on how these areas connect and contribute to a sustainable food systems transformation.
- Information about the process, its main steps, and the numbers of the consultation
- Key emerging policy and technical priority areas
- Key emerged challenges and successful/concrete solutions
- results and proposals for the upcoming period
- Roundtable: Family farming’s contribution to sustainable agri-food system transformation
- Given the extensive heterogeneity of family farms around the world, general policy prescriptions are unlikely to be relevant to all family farmers. To support family farming effectively, it is necessary to consider particular geographic and socio-economic specificities and to develop context-specific interventions focused on the explicit features of the relevant family farmer groups which take into account the specific needs of women, men and youth.
- To this end, the GAP envisages the creation of 100 National Action Plans for Family Farming (NAPs) by 2024. NAPs are contextualized frameworks of action at the national level for the support of family farming, which promote inter-institutional cooperation aimed at the integration of specific family farmers’ issues into policies and strategies related to the wider food and agricultural, social and environmental sectors.
- To support the implementation of the UNDFF at the country level, FAO stands ready to provide technical support at all stages of the NAP development and implementation process.
The Family Farming Knowledge Platform gathers digitized quality information on family farming from all over the world; including national laws and regulations, public policies, best practices, relevant data and statistics, researches, articles and publications. It provides a single access point for international, regional and national information related to family farming issues; integrating and systematizing existing information to better inform and provide knowledge-based assistance to policy-makers, family farmers’ organizations, development experts, as well as to stakeholders in the field and at the grassroots level.
