Summary

The opinion article of the December issue of The Broker notes that approximately 1.5 billion family farmers in the world live by producing food for themselves and for cities. In some regions, a policy emphasis on global markets and high-input agriculture undermines farmers' capacity to keep rural landscapes productive. AgriCultures Network partners argue that policy needs to create space for family farmers to realize their possible contribution to a resilient world without hunger: 'Any future needs family farming'.
