The Make Food Fair campaign concentrates on supporting small scale farmers.  Despite producing 70% of the world’s food, over half of the world’s hungry people are smallholder farmers, who struggle to earn a decent livelihood from their crops.

The aims of the campaign:

  1. Farmers first – give farmers a voice so they have a say in shaping their own future
  2. Fair share of value – make international supply chains work better for smallholder farmers so they receive fair prices
  3. Fair access to finance – increase access to timely and affordable credit making it easier for smallholder farmers to invest in their own future
  4. Future-proof farming – invest in sustainable farming practices and help smallholder farmers adapt to climate change
  5. Focus in government funding – meet internationally agreed targets for government spending and aid for agriculture, and ensure this reaches smallholders, especially women.
