Monday, April 7, 2014. JUAN CAAL Reporting: The Inter American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, IICA, is facilitating a discussion in Toledo on the issue of family farming and how it can contribute to Food Security.
Farmers from different communities are taking part in the discussion which is looking at the topic of “the role of family farming in food security.”
The forum is being moderated by IICA’s country representative Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim, with inputs from the Chief Agriculture Officer Roberto Harrison.
Organizers of the discussion are hoping that through networking, farmers in the Toledo district will come to realize that they can contribute effectively to food security.
Coming out of the discussion were ideas on how the individuals and their families can become self-sustainable and by extension, help in the development of their communities.
Another key part of the equation is improvement of the quality of agriculture production amongst local farmers.
This was also discussed during the forum.
