New report says family farming has key role in food security the Caribbean

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, CMC – A new report released on Thursday says family farming has key role to play in food security in the Caribbean and Latin America.
The report, “The Outlook for Agriculture and Rural Development in the Americas 2014: A Perspective on Latin America and the Caribbean,” presented at the 2013 Meeting of Ministers of Agriculture of the Americas, says Latin America and the Caribbean can produce more food by increasing the sector's productivity in the face of restrictions on using new land for agriculture.
The document is jointly produced by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA).
