Issue 17 - Family Farming - November 2013
The United Nations has declared 2014 the International Year of Family Farming , the primary aim of which is to promote, develop and strengthen all types of family-oriented agriculture as a socially valuable, economically viable and environmentally sustainable model
Family farming is the foundation upon which agriculture in Europe has thrived over the centuries. This issue of the EU Rural Review, which was launched at European Commission conference - Family farming: A dialogue towards more sustainable and resilient farming in Europe and the world - held on the 29 November 2013, looks at the family farming model in a European agricultural and rural development policy context, while also taking note of international aspects.
In the European Union, agriculture has long been at the centre of a strong and ambitious policy framework. In terms of rural development, the CAP Reform offers many relevant opportunities to family-run farm businesses, such as support for agricultural advisory services and measures promoting farm diversification, restructuring, modernisation, training and knowledge transfer.
The publication focuses on the family farming model’s contribution to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
