Good food starts with farmers: the men and women on the frontlines of our food systems and climate crisis, who are often the furthest behind but integral to achieving good food for all. Only with strong partnerships and multi-stakeholder collaboration are smallholder farmers able to produce good food for people and the planet.
Hosted by GAFSP, SDG2 Advocacy Hub, and UNFSS, this Twitter Chat highlights the vital role of smallholder farmers in delivering sustainable and nutritious food for all by providing a platform for stakeholders to discuss ways of working to ensure that food systems drive progress on the SDGs.
