Family and World Agricultures to Come

Family and World Agricultures to Come


J. Sourisseau

Edition 2014

This is a most welcome book this year - 2014 - declared the International Year of Family Farming by the United Nations. It reviews the most used approaches to analyse and understand family farming that is at the heart of world agricultures. It is vital to define family farming clearly to encompass better the challenges and place it in a more global context, so that its contribution to development that is both sustainable and fairer can be judged. This form of production is thus at the heart of debates on agricultural development.
