The “VIII Global Conference on Family Farming: Sustainability of Our Planet,” organised by the World Rural Forum, will take place from 19 to 21 March 2024 in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country, Spain.
It will bring together relevant family farming leaders from 5 continents, representatives of governments, international institutions, research centres, foundations, consumer, youth and women farmers’ organisations.

The Conference will be a unique space to define and strengthen the necessary commitments to ensure that family farming plays a leading role in global challenges, such as the climate crisis, the loss of biodiversity or the sustainability of food systems.

Five years into the United Nations Decade of Family Farming 2019-2028 (UNDFF), the 8th Global Conference on Family Farming provides a unique opportunity to reflect on key achievements, analyse the interconnected challenges facing family farming that have become more acute in recent times, and identify priority and catalytic actions to scale up the implementation of the UNDFF in response to these challenges facing not only agriculture, but humanity as a whole.

With the participation of highly relevant and knowledgeable speakers and participants and a programme that seeks to address the critical issues for the future of our planet, the 8th Global Conference on Family Farming promises to be a global call to action, a platform for collaboration and an opportunity for the most representative people in the field of family farming from all over the world to address together the most pressing challenges of our time.

As a member of the International Steering Committee for the implementation of the UN Decade of Family Farming, the World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO), in the person of its Secretary General, Dr Andrea Porro, will address the event to advocate for the worldwide family farmers’ needs and challenges.
