Philippine Action Plan for Family Farming 2019-2028

Posted by: 

As part of the Philippines' commitment to the United Nations Decade of Family Farming (UNDFF) 2019-2028, the Department of Agriculture (DA) through the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) published the Philippine Action Plan for Family Farming (PAP4FF). This document is a product of the series of multi-stakeholder consultations with strong participation of key government agencies, non-government organizations, civil society organizations, farmers' organizations as well as private sector.

More importantly, this document marks a significant milestone for the country to finally come up with a national action plan that mobilizes all relevant institutions from the key sectors towards an overarching goal of "Masaganang Ani, Mataas na Kita at Marangal na Buhay ng Pamilyang Magsasaka" (Abundant Harvests, High Incomes and Dignified Living of Family Farmers.)
