I am particularly pleased the Asia is working with International Foods org members to strengthen the focus on the next Open Investing in Smallholder Agriculture for Food Security and different definitions of “smallholder agriculture2” and each definition carries implications for the measurement of the number of smallholders. Definitions also guide our understanding of the investment needs of smallholders. A discussion on definitions is therefore neither trivial nor academic, but has real implications for policies and impacts on livelihoods. Important role in providing smallholders with additional income and as a
Way of diversifying risk, thus improving their resilience to the shocks that impact on agriculture. Off farm
Activities are a common feature of rural economies, both in developed and developing Countries, and offer opportunities for investments in support of smallholders.We have made huge progress today getting agreement to help end undernutrition in our lifetimes, backed by governments, business, science and NGOs. To achieve this, we must support economic growth by working with farmers, local businesses, international companies and the Asia governments building market reform into their programmes.
