IYFF – 2014: International Year of Family Farming

LOGO_IYFF_en_webThe United Nations recently launched 2014 to be the International Year of Family Farming. As our friends at FoodTank have posted:”This the first United Nations year that is the result of a campaign by civil society–the World Rural Forum (WRF) campaigned heavily for the year and it was backed by more than 360 civil and farmers’ organizations in five continents.”

FoodTank is collaborating with FAO on the IYFF, and has produced this video – please share it!

Here is the playlist of official videos from the November 22 launch at the UN:
