Successful advocacy towards the UN Human Rights Council to adopt the Declaration on peasants’ rights. A great victory achieved in Geneva in October for mostly poor smallholders globally and the organizations that have supported them for 17 years. It serves as a solid basis for advocacy in the region to promote policies conducive to the interests of smallholder farmers. FAO’s Scaling Up Agroecology Initiative adopted by the Committee on Agriculture with our strong advocacy support. Inputs submitted to the report focusing on agro-ecology compiled by the High-Level Panel of Experts of the Committee on World Food Security with a view to show how agroecology and organic agriculture are viable options for smallholders in the Global South. Submitting a position paper with a broad range of German NGOs to the German Government in order to get support for agroecology both politically and financially.
