Smallholder Productivity and Food Security

The Skoll World Forum is an excellent source of news and information regarding smallholder farmers.

Three-quarters of the world’s poorest live in rural areas. The majority rely on agriculture as their primary income and food source. Secure access to capital, land, technologies and other assets can lead to sustained food security and income generation – as well as contributing to long-term rural livelihoods. The aim is to move beyond subsistence farming and enable greater financial stability, but not at the expense of the environment. We advance innovations that address these issues not beneficiary by beneficiary but system wide. 

The above is reposted from the Skoll World Forum, which is an excellent site for news and information about entrepreneurial approaches and innovative solutions to the world’s social issues. Among the areas they report on regularly is Smallholder Productivity and Food Security.
