Ninety per cent of the world’s farmers are in developing countries and 85 per cent of farms worldwide are less than 2 hectares. Presently, family farming feeds up to 80 per cent of the population in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and supports the livelihoods of up to 2.5 billion people. Small family farms will play a vital role in achieving food security for 9 billion people by 2050 as world agricultural production will have to increase by 70 per cent.
