Investing in small holder farmers so they can feed the world: UNListen /
The future of farming is in the hands of small holder farmers and rural women farmers in particular, according to the World Farmers' Organization.
The international agricultural organization, formed in the wake of global food security concerns, is helping farmers worldwide come together to realize this goal.
WFO President Robert L. Carlson is in New York for the UN global debate on the status of women.
He says small farms that are less than 5 hectares already feed 50% of the world's population. And they can in the future feed the world.
Speaking to Jocelyne Sambira, he began by telling her what a farmer from North Dakota like him, shares with farmers in developing countries.
