Dear all,

Urbanization and the transformation of agriculture, food systems and rural spaces present challenges and opportunities for inclusive growth, poverty eradication, economic, environmental and social sustainability, and food security and nutrition. As a result, there is an increasing focus on rural-urban linkages and approaches which can address these issues in a holistic and integrated manner in order to fully address the challenges and maximize the opportunities.

Discussion extended until 24 December  2014. Keep sharing your reflections!

 

2014 has been declared as the International Year of Family Farming (IYFF). As this year closes, it is timely to take stock of how gender dynamics and women’s rights have been considered in the framework of studies and activities related to the IYFF, and what lessons can be learned for addressing gender issues in family farming going forwards.
