On Air Dialogues: Listening to rural people 2021 (highlights)

The 2021 United Nations Food Systems Summit was designed to create a path towards transforming the global food system so that it feeds the world sustainably, equitably, and inclusively. Small-scale farmers and other rural people must play an essential role in doing that. They are the backbone of the global food system, experts in their fields, and experienced in finding creative solutions.

In partnership with six radio stations in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Tanzania, and Uganda, Farm Radio International asked small-scale farmers, vendors, processors, marketers, and others how the food system should be changed to meet their needs and the needs of their communities. Nearly 12,000 responses were recorded, as people shared their concerns and solutions for creating a healthier, more sustainable, productive, and equitable food system.
