In 2021, the World Rural Forum organized a 4-day Global Conference entitled, “Family Farming at the Core of Sustainable Food Systems”. The Global conference was attended by family farmers, governments, UN agencies, research centers, cooperatives, and others organizations committed to strengthening family farming. This event confirmed the unique position of family farming in achieving inclusive, resilient, sustainable and viable food systems and the need to redouble efforts and build new partnerships. It also highlighted how the UN Decade for Family Farming offers us a unique opportunity to find the common commitments, roadmaps, policy and legislative frameworks that will allow us to move in this direction. The global conference also prepared a summary of the proceedings that include an in-depth analysis of the central contribution of family farming in transforming food systems to improve their sustainability and resilience and to address other challenges on the global agenda.
