Good news!  The “Guide on international and regional instruments to defend and promote the interests and rights of family farmers“, published in December 2021, has been awarded for its design.

The Guide has won the Anuaria Award for the best design of an editorial publication in the Anuaria Selection 2021. It is the result of a study carried out by the WRF together with the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights with the support of the International Land Coalition (ILC), and has been designed by the Basque agency Worköholics. It provides an overview of the international and regional legal frameworks and instruments that apply to the defence and promotion of family farming.  It has been conceived as a key advocacy tool, including very important content for advocacy, defence and promotion of family farMing.

This guide is supported by family farming organisations and CSO members of the World CSO Coordinating Committee (WCC) for the United Nations Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF), who, through a joint statement, underline the existence of numerous international, regional and national instruments that recognise and protect, from different perspectives, family farmers and their vital role in addressing some of today’s most important global challenges, including resilient food systems, rural development, climate change and women’s empowerment.

We call again for this guide to be widely disseminated in support of family farming and the work of the family farmers around the world.
