DID YOU KNOW? Investing in your agricultural sector can address not only hunger and malnutrition but, other challenges including poverty, water and energy use, unsustainable production and consumption and healthy job creation. Together, let’s mobilize AgroBiz developmental, technological, and training programs and social movements to address these challenges for sustainable development.
ECONOMIC GROWTH AND EMPLOYMENT
Agriculture is an engine of pro-poor economic growth in rural areas. Entrepreneurship across the rural, urban and food sectors can generate employment and growth.
Agricultural extension enables farmers to access to the skills, tools, inputs and knowledge they need to thrive.
Women farmers produce 20-30% less than their male counterparts, mostly due to differences in their access and use of resources. Women produce over half the food worldwide, so bridging this gap could reduce global hunger by as much as 17%.
Rural populations represent the largest segment of the world’s extreme poor by far – more than 70% of the total. Growth in agriculture is at least twice as effective in reducing poverty than from any other sector.
