    Since the land reforms of the 1990s, dualistic farm structures characterize the landscape of most transition countries in Europe and Central Asia, with large numbers of small subsistence and semi commercial family farms. Poverty, social vulnerability and other difficulties could prevent rural communities from fulfilling their role as important building blocks of food security. By enhancing productivity and income levels through sustainable intensification of production, better organization, ade quate services and integration into agrifood value chains, this Regional Initiative can contribute to the global goals of eradicating rural poverty and achieving food security and sustainable growth. Activities focus on sustainable management of agricultural land and water resources; sustainable intensification of smallholders’ production; strengthening the organizations of small producers and family farms; and enhancing access to rural services – such as advisory services and micro-loans.

    Empowering smallholders and strengthening family farms in Europe and Central Asia 2014
    Also available in:

    After the land reforms of the 1990s, transition countries of Europe and Central Asia became an area of smallholder farmers. Smallholders and family farms are an important factor for regional food security. However, a large number of them are not economically viable and, in most countries, rural people remain the most vulnerable section of the population. Smallholders can achieve higher levels of productivity and income through sustainable intensification of production, better organization, adequ ate services and integration into agri-food value chains. Getting family farming right is key to enhancing food security, achieving sustainable growth in rural areas, and making inroads against rural poverty.
