Investing in Strengthening the Resilience of Smallholder Farmers

Oct 21, 2013 - 04:00 pm to 05:30 pm EDT

2020 Policy Consultation on Building Resilience Lead Event

Smallholder farmers in developing countries are being hit by a barrage of economic, environmental, and political shocks, and these shocks are becoming more frequent and intense. Smallholder farmers in developing countries are increasingly challenged to anticipate, prepare for, cope with, and recover from shocks. The panelists, representing perspectives from government, NGOs, development institutions, and research organizations, will share their experiences of what works and what does not to help smallholder farmers be more resilient, which policies and investments need to be changed, where are the opportunities for innovation, and how different actors can work better with each other to be more successful.
