About this event


The regional forum aims to promote and strengthen multi- actor partnerships that contribute to positive policy changes in family farming in line with UNDFF. In specific terms, it intends to:

1. Raise awareness and build a common understanding on the:

a. contributions of family farmers and the UNDFF on achieving the SDGs 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 and 17
b. situation of family farming in Asia
c. the UNDFF Global Action Plan
d. challenges and opportunities faced by family farmers

2. Share viable practices in promoting family farming with a multi-stakeholder approach:

a. current status of NCFFs in Asia
b. good policies, programs, and multi-stakeholder models on land rights (beyond NCFFs) and sustainable agriculture and inclusion of family farmers in policy reform and decision making

3. Develop commitments, plans and concrete actions and ways forward on:

a. policy priorities to promote land rights and sustainable agriculture at country and regional levels while cognizant of transversal/cross-cutting concerns of women, youth, indigenous peoples, pastoralists and herders engaged in family farming. The global action plan of the UNDFF includes a pillar each on women (Pillar 2) and youth (Pillar 3)
b. creation and/or strengthening of multi-stakeholder platforms for UNDFF implementation, inclusive of family farming organizations and marginalized groups, particularly women and youth
c. ways of sharing progress of UNDFF implementation at country and regional levels a common research agenda to support evidence-based policy and advocacy work on the UNDFF
