The UN Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 (UNDFF) will host its first Global Forum on 19-22 September 2022, three years after its implementation. Since its launch in 2019, the Decade has been promoting integrated actions supported by cross-sectoral policies that address the environmental, economic and social dimensions of sustainable development. This approach resulted in the approval of 3 Regional and 10 National Action Plans for family farming, while 186 relevant policies, laws and regulations were developed and endorsed around the world for the support of family farming. At the international level, the Decade has mobilized a range of stakeholders joining forces to work on concrete initiatives in support of family farming: to date, 52 countries are actively working in the implementation of the UNDFF, involving more than 2600 family farmer organizations, NGOs, public and research institutions.
