The Global Dialogue on Family Farming
©FAO/Khalil Mazraawi
27 October 2014, Rome--- As the IYFF enters its final phase, the Global Dialogue on Family Farming (GDFF), brings together government representatives, family farmers and their organizations, civil society, private sector, academia and development agencies, to take stock of the momentum created and set the tone for a pro-family farming agenda for action post-2014. Throughout 2014 – the International Year of Family Farming, a series of multi stakeholder policy dialogue fora have highlighted the present and potential contribution of family farmers to eradicating poverty, safeguarding the environment, and nurturing our planet. This has improved our understanding of the challenges facing family farmers in different social, economic and ecological settings.
