Farmers are the key to achieve Sustainable Food Security. What farmers produce is the precondition to attain the UN Sustainable Development Goal number 2.
More than 1 billion people in the world live in absolute poverty. 925 million people do not have enough food in order to sustain life and work. The great majority of these people live in the rural areas, and most of them are farmers. Farmers constitute about one third of the world´s population, but half of the world´s hungry.
