Relation between the food security and the Local Agriculture

More than 90 percent of the 570 million farms worldwide are run by a single person or family and mainly relies on family labor. In these fields, more than 80 percent of the world’s food is produced in terms of value. Eighty-four percent of the world’s family farms are smaller than 2 hectares, and these farms account for only 12 percent of all agricultural land. While small farms generally have higher yields than large farms, their labor productivity is lower, and many farmers are small, poor, and food insecure in small family farms. The durability and future food security of these farms can be threatened by excessive use of resources. To ensure food security, public policies are essential to address the complexity of the challenges faced by family farms throughout the chain. Nevertheless, the share of agricultural sector in the national economy and food security of the country is high, but only 5% of the total investment in the country is allocated to this sector.
