Farming Matters | 29.2 | June 2013

The United Nations declared 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming. This is a very important recognition of the multiple social, economic, environmental and cultural functions of family farming. For example, family farmers produce more than 50% of the world’s food, and are important guardians of biodiversity. Creating the conditions for family farming to thrive is essential for a sustainable future.

The threats to family farming are multidimensional. Climate change, land grabbing, land degradation, the aggressive promotion of industrial farming and dependence on large agribusiness chains are some of the most pressing challenges. Many family farmers have proven to be innovative and resilient under the right socio-political framework and conditions – especially when supported by public and institutional policies.

Family farmers can exert a large degree of autonomy through the use of agro-ecological practices and the creation of markets that are based on more direct relationships with consumers. They pool their labour and resources, and increase their yields. They organise themselves and make their voices heard. They build their own educational spaces where they learn from each other and teach others. Women play a key role in these strategies, which are often carried out in close collaboration with local decision makers, researchers, and consumer platforms.

For the December 2013 issue, Farming Matters is looking for the most groundbreaking experiences and visionary ideas on how to strengthen family farming. What are family farmers and their organisations doing to advocate for and enhance their rights and livelihoods? How are governments incorporating agro-ecology into their public policies? What other support mechanisms are needed to valorise and promote sustainable family farming? How can agro-ecological family farming become an attractive proposition for future generations? What can we learn from existing and emerging practices?

Please send us your contributions. Articles for the December issue of Farming Matters should be sent to the editor, Jorge Chavez-Tafur, before October 1st, 2013. E-mail: j.chavez-tafur@ileia.org

Coach's popularity has http://www.wwwcoachoutlet.us.com Coach Outlet Online 70% OFF.One spiked http://www.coachoutletstoreofficial.us.com - Coach Outlet http://www.coachonline.us.com in the last few year, and that's made the brand's fans very interesting to follow on social media. The brand's accessories profile first surged in the http://www.coachonlinefactoryoutlet.us.com mid-to-late-2000s on the strength of the Paddington, Silverado http://www.coachoutletstoress.us.com Coach Outlet Stores and Paraty Coach bags, but after Phoebe Philo's departure, it took http://www.coach-factory-outletonline.us.com Coach Factory Outlet 2016 http://www.michael-kors.us.com a few years to regain its status as an assured http://www.coachfactory.name Coach Factory hitmaker. Thankfully, those days have returned http://www.raybansunglassessale.com with super-popular bags like the Drew, Faye and Hudson debuting seemingly http://www.michaelkors.us.com every http://www.oakleyoutlet.com.co season.

The http://www.michaelkorsoutletwebsite.us.com michael kors outlet thread on our PurseForum is filled with http://www.truereligionoutlet.us.com devotees of the brand's designs. Our followers showcase their love by revealing their latest handbag purchases or by toting around old http://www.coachoutletstoresonline.us.com Coach Factory Outlet favorites http://www.coachoutletonline.us Coach Outlet Online US http://www.michaelkorsonlineoutlets.us.com like the Bay Bag or Silverado. Whether you http://www.oakleysunglassess.in.net prefer old http://www.coachfactory-outletonline.com Coach USA Store or http://www.michaelkorsoutlet-online.us.com new michael kors, one thing's for sure: our Coach Outlet - http://www.coachfactoryonlineoutlets.us.com Purseforum members favor them all!

Get ready for a trip down memory lane in this latest PurseForum roundup, and check out all our favorites from the Your Coach in Action http://www.coach-factoryonline.us.com thread!

The Peekaboo debuted in 2009, and at first, it did http://www.christianlouboutinco.us.com what freshly debuted designer bags http://www.michaelkors-outlet-online.com normally do: the Peekaboo enjoyed a couple years of popularity and then got rotated to the back of the lineup in favor of whatever Next Big Things the brand had in the pipeline. http://www.factorystoreonline.com Generally, that’s followed by a bag http://www.coachonlinestoreoutlet.us.com being mostly ignored and http://www.coachoutletusaonline.us.com then eventually put out to pasture quietly, when people are unlikely to notice its eventually absence. Instead of that slow http://www.oakleyoutletsunglasses.com march into the sunset, Fendi decided http://www.coachoutlets.us to http://www.coach-factorystore.us.com reintroduce the Peekaboo and shoppers ate it up.

It’s not unheard http://www.sacnoirpascher.com of for brands to try http://www.coachfactoryoutlet-stores.us.com and re-promote a bag http://www.chiflatironwebsite.us.com CHI Flat Iron that was once very popular, but it rarely works. Shoppers want novelty, and most bags that are eligible for re-promotion just don’t have the enduring appeal http://www.coachfactoryonline.name necessary to feel fresh instead of dated when a customer Coach Outlet USA http://www.coachoutletstores.us Coach Outle sees them again, http://www.raybansunglassesstores.us.com five years down http://www.outletonlineclearance.com the road. The Peekaboo http://www.coach-factoryoutletstores.us.com has already passed that test http://www.valentinooutlets.us.com with flying http://www.coach-factoryoutletstore.us.com colors, and there’s not reason to think it won’t http://www.coachfactoryoutletinc.us.com stick around for a long time.

Also worth noting is the http://www.oakleyonlineoutlet.us.com Peekaboo’s positioning http://www.coachoutletstorefactory.us.com within Fendi’s lineup; the http://www.raybanonline.us.com bag is the brand’s most expensive, on average, and bags that become enduring classics usually hold that spot in http://www.raybanoutletonline.co.uk their designers’ collections. After all, if a design is destined for greatness, it should at least be the best in its class. For instance, the one http://www.oakleysunglassesshop.us.com you see above can be yours for $3,550 via Net-a-Porter.

Celebs are all http://www.uggoutletonline.us.com uggs outlet over the http://www.ray-banoutletstore.us.com globe this http://www.oakleyonlinestore.us.com week, http://www.valentinoshoes.us.com and yet their http://www.raybansunglasscheap.us.com bag choices are oddly in sync. Bags from Fendi and Saint Laurent are http://www.michealkorsoutlet.us.com obvious faves, and a hot new style from http://www.classicbootshut.com ugg boots hut has just http://www.michaelkors-outletonline.us.org made one of its first appearances on the site and you're sure to have an http://www.valentinooutlet.us.org opinion http://www.raybansunglassesshop.us.com about it http://www.us-oakleysunglasses.us.com one way or another. In related news, Reese Witherspoon remains surprisingly loyal to her http://www.oakleyoutletsonline.us.com favorite http://www.valentinorockstud.us.com Salvatore Ferragamo style, and Solange http://www.truereligionjeans.us.org Knowles brought a mystery bag to Beyoncé's b-day party. http://www.oakleyvaultsunglasses.us.com If you can properly identify http://www.louisvuittonlv.us.com it for us, we will crown you as our leader.

Beyond that, http://www.michaelkorsfactoryoutletonline.us.com most of the http://www.valentinoshoes.us.org episode was spent in preparation to go to Glamis. Much http://www.raybansunglassoutlet.us.com ado was http://www.raybanoutletsunglass.us.com made about Heather’s fancy http://www.hermesbirkinoutlet.us.com camper that she needed because she’s a princess http://www.ralphlauren-outlet.us.com who just can’t spend a night in a regular RV like http://www.clshoesoutletonline.com Tamra http://www.giuseppezanotti.us.com and her plebe http://www.raybansoutletonline.us.com family, as well as http://www.michaelkorshandbagsoutlets.us.com the foil packets her private chef http://www.ray-banoutletonline.us.com prepared for her so http://www.sunglasseshut.com.co she could just toss them on the grill without having to operate a http://www.polosralphlauren.us.com salt shaker or cut a vegetable.

The results of http://www.wwwraybansunglasses.us.com Heather’s expenses and http://www.abercrombieoutletonline.us.com efforts http://www.raybanoutlets.co.uk were an RV that did not look especially more spacious or comfortable than the others on the inside, but was far shinier on the outside, as well as a meal that tasted http://www.christian-louboutinshoes.us.com probably http://www.valentinoshoesoutlet.us.com about the same as everybody else’s because http://www.michaelkorswallet.us.com Heather doesn’t know how to http://www.pascherportefeuille.com use a grill. http://www.truereligionoutletonline.in.net Heather also seemed to http://www.true-religions.us.com recognize that her http://www.michaelkorsfactoryoutlets.us.com special, expensive RV wasn’t stunting quite as hard on the others as she wold have preferred, though, but she didn’t http://www.oakleyoutlet.name explain why she http://www.valentinooutlet.org didn’t have http://www.valentino.com.co her http://www.oakleysunglassoutlet.us.com assistant find her an even better RV instead of just http://www.michaelkorsoutletonlines.us taking Tamra’s recommendation. Good help is so hard to find! Even in costars.

After a long holiday http://www.valentinorockstudshoes.us.com weekend, it’s time to get http://www.oakleysunglassesdeals.us.com back to the swing of things, http://www.michael-korsoutletonline.com and what better way to http://www.michaelkorsoutletsale.us.com ease the transition than with a roundup http://www.sacblanc.com of http://www.louboutinshoes.us.com dreamy http://www.michaelkorsoutletco.us.com http://www.truereligionoutletco.us.com Coach bags? You all know I’m a big fan of Coach, but I’m not the only one who shares a deep and http://www.marcjacobsoutlet.us.org abiding love for the http://www.modeldesac.com brand. In our weekly http://www.achetersacamain.com celebrity style http://www.tomsshoe.us.com roundups, we always see celebs toting various Coach bags, and it’s hard not to swoon over the brand’s light structured, minimalist designs. But celebs aren’t the only loyal Coach fans; http://www.valentinoshoes.com.co plenty of our Instagram followers showcase their love for the bags on a http://www.north-faceoutlet.us.com daily basis, and we’re here to share some of our favorites from recent days.

Finding http://www.acheterportefeuille.com Coach bags on Instagram is easy thanks to http://www.sacamainvuitton.com several dedicated hashtags http://www.sacamainblanc.com many avid Coach followers use, such as: #celine, #celineaddict, #celinebag, #celineparis–you get the idea. While Coach’s signature bags under Phoebe Philo may be the Luggage and Trapeze bags, many of our followers love those signature styles right alongside many of the brand’s under-the-radar bags. Get ready to see lots of Classic Box Bags, Trapeze Bags and much more below.
