Celebrating World Food Day with forests and family farming 16 October 2014

Rome: Addressing food security and nutrition requires a holistic perspective. A Committee on Food Security side event will demonstrate the interconnection of forests and farms at the landscape level. It will emphasize the important role of forests and trees in family farming and food security through the direct provision of nutritious food and by maintaining sustainable agricultural systems, thus ensuring local livelihoods. Organized by the FAO Forestry Department and Forest and Farm Facility in partnership with the Indigenous Partnership for Agro-biodiversity and Food Sovereignty and the Asian Farmers Association for Sustainable Rural Development.
