  • Family farmers are leaders in responding to the double urgency facing the Near East and North Africa region today: Improving food and nutrition security, and ensuring inclusive agricultural development while preserving natural resources.
  • This is why the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) co-organized a virtual event this week to spotlight the role of family farming in the Near East and North Africa.
  • The 2019-28 UNDFF will make family farming and all family-based production models the focus of interventions, which will contribute to the goals we all share: A world free of hunger and poverty, where natural resources are managed sustainably, and where no one is left behind.
