The future of family farming

Malaysia Room (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

In the complex scenario of agrifood systems increasingly threatened by interconnected and mutually reinforcing challenges,
the often-predicted disappearance of family farmers appears both unrealistic and undesirable, given the productive, social, cultural, and environmental functions that this production model provides.

The discussion about the future of family farming will bring together academics, policymakers and family farmers
to reflect together on the ways family farmers can be the foundation of
sustainable and inclusive agrifood systems that offer new economic opportunities and effective rural services, leaving no one behind.
