Food Security and Small Farming in the Global Era (1990-2008)


This paper discusses the relationship between small farming and food security in low-income economies. Pointing out the relevance of this relationship in the context of global food crises and globalisation of agriculture, the article introduces the problems small farmers face to engage in national food production. With particular emphasis on small developing economies, the paper introduces different agrarian strategies and their impacts on small farming food production in the current context of globalisation.
