    Combater a pobreza e a fome conciliando agricultura e proteção social 2018

    This visual graphic aims at highlighting the main messages from the publication “Strengthening coherence between agriculture and social protection – Framework for Analysis and Action”. Why social protection is important, how agriculture and social protection complement and mutually reinforce each other, what are some examples of well-coordinated agriculture and social protection interventions, and what more can be done to make the two sectors work together to combat hunger and poverty. Despite recent progress, still today 1 billion people are poor and 800 million people are hungry. Extreme poverty is concentrated in rural areas, and the rural poor largely rely on agriculture especially in sub-Saharan Africa where as much as 66% of the income of poor small family farmers comes from agriculture. Combating hunger and poverty involves increasing production and diversification among small family farmers as well as increasing and stabilizing domestic food production. Well-coordinated agricultural and social protection programmes can help poor small family farmers in breaking-out of the cycle of poverty and hunger.

    There are still 2.1 billion poor people and other 767 million living in extreme poverty, most of which live in rural areas. Most of the poor live in rural areas and 95% per cent of the rural poor live in East Asia, South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the rural poor are smallholders and family farmers, who depend on agriculture for their food and income. FAO works through a multi-dimensional approach to address the challenges that poor family farmers face in their daily lives and increase their income generating capacity. At the policy level, FAO helps countries shape poverty reduction policies and programme that improve family farmers’ participation in decision-making, increase their access to resources, financial services, markets and technologies while increasing decent employment opportunities and promoting better social protection coverage in rural areas. At the community level, FAO empowers poor family farmers to participate in policy dialogue and decision-making processes that affect their livelihoods, and improves their capacities to access resources, services, markets, technologies and economic opportunities through agricultural, organizational and entrepreneurial skills.
