    Morocco, Tunisia, Mauritania

    The Maghreb's oases systems provide a major contribution to the region's food security, economy and natural resources. Despite this potential, oasis ecosystems are threatened by a range of complex factors related to the expansion of agricultural land and increasing scarcity of water resources. The project, implemented by FAO in Tunisia, Morocco and Mauritania from May 2016 to December 2019, brought together key stakeholders to address the lack of available information on the status of oases and to advocate on factual bases shared by all stakeholders and verifiable in the field.

    Philippines

    Land-based sectors in the Philippines are affected by institutional
    weaknesses in various ways, including overlapping and conflicting
    policies, laws and programmes, a lack of reform in public land
    management and inadequate funding for urban development, disaster
    mitigation and climate change. Land governance has thus been given
    paramount importance in recent years. However, security of tenure
    for all remains a challenge as the existing institutional set-up fails
    to respond to the needs of people in the land, fisheries and forestry

    About two-thirds of the developing world’s 3 billion rural people live in about 475 million small farm households, working on land plots smaller than 2 hectares. 1 Many are poor and food insecure and have limited access to markets and services. Their choices are constrained, but they farm their land and produce food for a substantial proportion of the world’s population. Besides farming they have multiple economic activities, often in the informal economy, to contribute towards their small incomes.

    Ethiopia
    The Ethiopian population will grow from present
    102 to almost 190 million in the next three
    decades, out of which 76 million people will live in
    cities and towns vis-à-vis 19 million today. Per capita
    national income, currently at USD 767 per year, will
    almost double by 2050. These changes will trigger
    consumption for all livestock products to increase
    tremendously: between 2015 and 2050 demand for
    milk and beef is estimated to grow by about 5.5

    Small Family Farms Country Factsheet: Tajikistan
    Policy Papers & Briefs
    December, 2018
    Tajikistan

    Although only 5 percent of Tajikistan's land area is farmable due to the country's mountainous geography, agriculture accounts for 53 percent of total employment. Among those households that engage in agriculture, almost 90 percent can be classified as small family farms. With 0.2 hectares on average, Tajikistan's smallholders operate on very marginalized farmland which makes it less surprising that on-farm income and income from non-agricultural wages are almost evenly balanced.
