VI GLOBAL CONFERENCE, A DECADE FOR FAMILY FARMING
2018/10/04
A Decade to improve the life of family farmers. 25-30 March 2019, Bilbao

The General Assembly of the United Nations adopted the Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 on 20 December 2017 in order to improve the life of family farmers in the five continents. The declaration of the Decade ensures the continuity of the successful IYFF-2014 process by advancing the implementation of public policies and facilitating the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its SDGs.

 

The Decade is our opportunity to, collectively, achieve more and better public policies for Family Farming and defend existing ones; to be a major force behind the implementation of said policies; to make sure Family Farming is understood and recognized for its worth; to put people ahead of major interests; our opportunity to build a better future. 

 

Thus, it is up to us to successfully implement the Decade by seizing this enormous opportunity. Within this context, the WRF is organising its VI Global Conference on Family Farming entitled: "A Decade to improve the lives of Family Farmers". The event will be held between 25 and 30 March 2019 in the city of Derio-Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain.

 

The VI Global Conference on Family Farming will be a preparatory event of the Launching of the Decade, to be held in Rome weeks later. Both occasions are part of a process to build a solid, multi-stakeholder and participatory Agenda for the Decade of Family Farming at the national, regional and global levels. 

 

The IV Global Conference will bring representatives from various governments, family farmers organizations, international organizations (such as FAO and IFAD), National Committees for Family Farming, rural development associations, NGOs, cooperatives and academia from all five continents together.  

 

GOALS OF THE CONFERENCE

 

The objectives of the VI Global Conference are as follows:

 

- Contribute to design the official Decade Agenda for the national, regional and global levels by developing quality inputs for the Action Plan of the Decade of Family Farming.

 

- Facilitate dialogue, new partnerships and the involvement of new actors in the Decade (governments, farmers organizations, international organizations, rural associations, cooperatives, research centers, other CSOs, etc), to promote the implementation of the above mentioned Agenda.

 

- Raise awareness on the fundamental importance of Family Farming for humanity and promote the Decade of Family Farming as a key tool for the SDGs fulfilment.

 

- Encourage the development and implementation of public policies in favor of Family Farming that contribute to the achievement of the Decade’s agenda within the SDG framework.

 

- Enhance mechanisms and platforms for policy dialogue, particularly the National Committees for Family Farming.

 

- Strengthen Family Farming organizations through exchanges of knowledge, information and experience.

 

Besides, the implementation of the Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 offers us the opportunity to facilitate the inclusion of young people in the agricultural, fishing and livestock sector. It will also provide an opportunity to continue working for the recognition of women farmers, promoting more effective policies against discrimination.

 

In addition, there will be an important focus on policies to improve access to natural resources, especially land and water, as an essential basis for Family Farming. Promotion of public research and innovation specifically related to Family Farming in order to improve the quality of life for family farmers will also be a key aspect.
