Millions of smallholders worldwide produce just enough for their families to survive. However, smallholders are often unable to produce enough and suffer from hunger. Only small-scale farmers who are able to sell their products at an adequate price will produce more than their families consume, and only under these circumstances can these farmers contribute to feeding other people and make provisions for hard times. The government has taken steps to reform the agriculture sector and to address the subsidies and high trade barriers that distort agricultural trade. The overall aim is to establish a fairer trading system that will increase market access and improve the livelihoods of farmers around the world.”
