Through our association with the Alliance Against Hunger and Malnutrition, we understand that this year has been declared the “International Year of Family Farming”. This has been confirmed through the 66th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
The 2014 IYFF aims to raise the profile of family farming and smallholder farming by focusing the world’s attention on each significant role in eradicating hunger and poverty, providing food security and nutrition, improving livelihoods, managing natural resources, protecting the environment, and achieving sustainable development.
We are aiming to engage in this program by ensuring aquaculture is not forgotten. Please refer to:
