The World Rural Forum (WRF) recently released the 2021 synthesis report on the progress in the implementation of the United Nations Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF) national and regional action plans on family farming between 2019 and 2021.
The assessment is part of the monitoring activities in the implementation of the UNDFF 2019-2028 of WRF in collaboration with FAO. The report presents the status of action plan implementation in 60 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean. It also identifies methodologies, tools, and mechanisms to develop UNDFF action plans.
In general, the report notes that there has been an increase in the number of countries engaged in the promotion of the UNDFF agenda from 2019 to 2021. Presented below is the status on the UNDFF National Action Plan (NAP) implementation of the 60 countries mapped for the assessment:
