2014: Year of Family Farming
On 22 December 2011, the UN General Assembly approved the declaration of the year 2014 as the I nternational Year of the Family Farming (IYFF).
The number of farmers, rural and other organizations, giving their official support to the Campaign in favour of the declaration by the UN of an International Year of the Family Farming-IYFF is increasing every day, worldwide.
The importance of this Campaign can be appreciated from the necessity of giving an enormous boost to family farming, considered as a way of life with a future, capable of guaranteeing sufficient sustainable food for humanity, of managing the biodiversity and the conservation of the planet, respecting the different cultures and traditions.
It is also anticipated that it will help promoting more and better policies and actions for
governments at all levels to turn their attention to this vital sector of society and increasingly
invest in it to allow a growing competitiveness of family farming and its attention to ecological and socioeconomic
aspects. More information on the IYFF is available here. FAO will take care, at the request of the UN General
Assembly, of the IYFF 2014 official programme,.
