The UN Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 (UNDFF) was launched on 29 May 2019 at FAO headquarters, Rome. The UNDFF aims to shed new light on what it means to be a family farmer in a rapidly changing world and highlights more than ever before the important role family farmers play in eradicating hunger and shaping our future of food.
To take stock of processes, activities and results in 2019 – 2021, FAO and IFAD is co-organizing a Global Forum of the UNDFF from 19 to 22 September 2022. The event aims at leveraging the views of different relevant actors to better understand successful experiences that can be the basis for knowledge sharing and dissemination of:
- Good practices;
- Main challenges faced in dealing with implementation in different contexts;
- Policy areas and key topics that emerge as priorities to focus on for the next period of implementation.
In the lead-up to the Global Forum, Regional Dialogues are being organized to give all actors the opportunity to connect, and reinforce multi-actor collaboration addressing emerging topics and context-specific key challenges on a regional scale towards the implementation of the UNDFF. The Regional Dialogues is co-organized by IFAD and FAO, in agreement with relevant family farmers organisations and other key stakeholders.
Discussions held in the framework the Regional Dialogue will be systematized and reported at relevant sessions of the Global Forum (19 -22 September), feeding the UNDFF way forward and capitalizing on the emerging key topics and priority areas discussed at the regional level.
