2. Share knowledge


While much of the knowledge needed to improve global agriculture already exists, including within remote indigenous communities, it often does not reach those farmers that could benefit most.

  • Increase the level of education on crop and natural resource management for farmers and agricultural workers, including women.
  • Take substantive measures to eliminate child labour and make sure children benefit from decent work conditions and access to education.
  • Promote the development of village-based knowledge centres.
  • Provide access to scalable information technologies for farmers, including women and young farmers, to receive weather, crop and market alerts, as well as other early warning systems to help them make the right decisions for sustainability and productivity.
  • Establish open and transparent two-way exchanges that capture the ‘voice of the farmer’ in the process of policy formulation and implementation.
