FAO Family Farming Platform
IFOAM - Organics International has started its collaboration with the FAO Family Farming Knowledge Platform (FFKP). Documents, factsheets and videos on organic farming are now available to their 150,000 users.
The web-based knowledge platform shares information and knowledge on key topics and the state of policy making related to family farming across the world in a user-friendly facility on the web. It gathers digitized quality information on family farming from all over the world; including national laws and regulations, public policies, best practices, relevant data and statistics, researches, articles and publications.
The FFKP integrates and systematizes existing information to better inform and provide knowledge-based assistance to policy-makers, family farmers’ organizations, and development experts, as well as to stakeholders in the field and at the grassroots level.
We call on organic organizations worldwide to contribute with the platform by feeding the database with their materials. It is an opportunity to share organic ideas and experiences with a global audience.
