2014: Year of Family Farming
by Redaktion (comments: 0)
During its last General Assembly in Korea, the IFOAM membership approved two motions about Family Farming and Agriculture. It was decided that IFOAM, as signatory organisation for the declaration of the International Year of Family Agriculture, shall lead the positioning of Family Agriculture - and its campaign - in the main networks, platforms and dialogue and cooperation spaces it participates, based on IFOAM's Smallholder Position Paper highlighting successful stories of family farmers members around the world. IFOAM should also encourage and participate in medium and long-term research in order to enable the integral assessment of organic systems of family farms, including monetary income and its impact on the quality of life of the families, especially for those who are internationally defined as living in 'poverty' conditions.
