FAMILY FARM BAROMETER 2020
UNDERSTANDING FOOD SYSTEMS IN ORDER TO TRANSFORM THEM
Agriculture ? Malnutrition ? Today, when talking about these issues, it is appropriate to talk about “food systems”. The holding of a UN summit on food systems next year proves it.
But what exactly is meant by this notion? And above all, what does it imply as political change? Is there a turning point in the global management of food security and agriculture issues?
Through a deciphering article and the testimonies of leading experts, the 2020 Barometer of Family Farming draws a conclusion: the current food system is not up to the challenges of the 21st century and it is urgent to radically transform it. The Barometer also provides leads to engage in the construction of a sustainable food system.

For this 2020 edition, the Barometer changes its formula: an important place is kept for the deciphering of the stakes, but the Barometer now directly gives the floor to experts, farmers’ organisations and civil society movements.
All of them gave a low score (unsatisfactory or seriously unsatisfactory) for this year.
