Plantwise welcomes a new year with a renewed focus: ‘The International Year of Family Farming’ has begun. The UN General Assembly declared 2014 as the official year to draw attention to policy and practices which support livelihoods of smallholder farmers worldwide. That means this year is dedicated to the 2 billion+ people who depend on farming for their food and income, and who should all have access to the right resources to provide for their families. CABI and Plantwise celebrate this International Year of Family Farming by continuing to bring these resources to more farmers, in more communities than ever before.
Take a look back on some of the highlights from Plantwise’s work in over 30 countries promoting sustainable family farming during 2013, here in our recent newsletter and Year in Review video. For more information on what to expect for Family Farming’s commemorative year, visit the official website.
