The FAO focuses on family farming to combat hunger

2014 World Food Day is stressing the message "Feeding the world, caring for the Earth"

Raising the world population's awareness of family farming and the importance of small farmers is the goal set by the FAO this year for World Food Day, which was held on October 16th. In fact, family farming is inextricably associated with national and world food security, it is linked to rural development and it is a powerful tool in the struggle against hunger and poverty around the world.

We should recall that eradicating extreme poverty and hunger is the first of the Millennium Development Goals. Unfortunately, far from this goal being met by 2015, organizations like the FAO constantly stress the fact that the development of family farming is one of the key ways to improve the means of livelihood, organize our natural resources, protect the environment and achieve sustainable development, especially in rural zones.

In this sense, the United Nations General Assembly  also proclaimed 2014 International Year of Family Farming, a clear signal that the international community recognizes the important contribution made to world food security by family farmers.
