In 2017, over 100 countries unanimously voted in the UN General Assembly to adopt the UN Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028. IFAD and FAO co-lead the Decade in its global mandate to focus the efforts of the international community, including governments and the UN system, to create policies, laws and frameworks that will support family farmers to improve their food security, nutrition and incomes, thereby supporting the SDGs and investments in rural people.
