Sustainable Peasant and Family Farm Agriculture Can Feed the World


The 2008 world food price crisis, and more recent price hikes this year, have focused attention on the ability of the world food system to “feed the world.”

In La Via Campesina the global alliance of peasant and family farm organizations, we believe that agroecological food production by small farmers is the agricultural model best suited to meeting future food needs. The contemporary food crisis is not really a crisis of our ability to produce.
