United Nations Decade of Family Farming officially launched in Tunisia

The United Nations Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF) 2019-2028 was officially launched Friday in Tunis by Minister of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries Mahmoud Elyes Hamza.

 Adopted on December 20, 2017 by the UN General Assembly, the UNDFF encourages all member states to develop and implement public policies for the development of family farming, which encompasses all family-based agricultural activities.

 The UNDFF aims to eradicate hunger and poverty and improve food security, nutrition and livelihoods. It is also designed to optimise the management of natural resources, preserve the environment and promote sustainable development.

The Tunisian Union of Agriculture and Fisheries (French: UTAP) was designated by the UN General Assembly to take leadership in national mobilisation for the UNDFF.
