Mountain Farming is Family Farming

The UN has declared 2014 to be the International Year of Family Farming. In observance of this, the FAO Mountain Partnership Secretariat, CDE, and other Mountain Partnership members have put together a publication featuring 25 case studies on diverse mountain landscapes. It provides an overview of the global changes affecting mountain farming communities and the strategies that they have developed to cope. Each study presents a set of lessons and recommendations for mountain communities, policymakers, development experts, and researchers working to support mountain farmers and protect mountains areas.
