PUBLIC CONSULTATION : A REVIEW OF THE ROLE OF FAMILY FARMING, KEY CHALLENGES
AND PRIORITIES FOR THE FUTURE

The European Commission has started a public consultation on family faming. The questionnaire is available in numerous languages; you can choose at the
top right-hand corner of the screen. The consultation goes until 26 Sept 2013.

The questionnaire seeks contributions towards the European conference “Family farming: A dialogue towards more sustainable and resilient farming in Europe and the world”, on 29 November 2013. This conference will look at the role of family farming, some of their key challenges, as well as priorities for the future, in the context of the UN’s declaration of 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming, which aims to raise the profile of family farming by focusing world attention on its role in alleviating hunger and poverty, providing food security and improving livelihoods, while protecting the environment and biodiversity.

You can find the questionnaire under http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/ipm/forms/dispatch
