The pandemic caused by COVID-19 requires, in addition to the sanitary measures adopted by governments, coordinated responses to protect the most vulnerable sectors; maintain efficient, inclusive, resilient and sensitive agri-food systems to food and nutritional security and sovereignty. And, consequently, to be able to mitigate the social and economic effects, rethink social and economic relations in the post-pandemic scenarios and ensure the continuity of the contribution of family farming.
In the current scenario, the FAO jointly the Mechanism for Mechanism for Forests and Farms (FFF), in the framework of the United Nations Decade for Family Farming (UNDAF), collects information on the impact on agriculture peasant family (AFC), forest and agricultural producer organizations (OPFA), and indigenous peoples; likewise, the information stock includes the responses and initiatives of governments and civil society. The analysis of this information allows a better understanding of the impacts in different contexts and levels, and, therefore, provides better guidance to its Member States. FAO also promotes South-South Cooperation exchanges in order to bring together information on successful measures and common challenges between producers, organizations and decision makers, in order to learn from proven solutions with the potential to be adapted in their own contexts.
