FAO Brussels Dialogue
Strengthening family farming-centred food systems 


Pathways for global transformations
 Jointly organized with the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU 14 April 2021
16:00-17:30 (CET)

 

To feed the world and do it sustainably, an urgent and radical shift in our food systems is necessary. Family farmers–including pastoralists, fishers, foresters, indigenous people and other groups of food producers–are at the heart of this issue. They provide the majority of the world’s food, are the major investors in agriculture and the backbone of the rural economic structure. The United Nations proclaimed the United Nations Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF) 2019-2028 with the objective of region-specific agricultural strategies, in order to achieve substantial transformations in current food systems that will contribute to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

THE EVENT
The exchange will raise awareness about the opportunities created by the UN Decade of Family Farming in the EU, its neighboring countries (Mediterranean and Western Balkans) and worldwide, for food systems transformation. Speakers and participants will exchange experiences on national strategies, programs and policies that promote sustainable food systems, centered around family farming. They will explore concrete ways to create synergies between the implementation of the European Union's Farm to Fork Strategy and the United Nations Decade of Family Farming. (Portuguese interpretation will be available.)
