Factsheet: The importance of smallholders and family farmers : A factsheet produced by the FAO highlights the importance of smallholders and family farmers. Eighty percent of the farmland in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia is managed by smallholders (working on up to 10 hectares). While 75 percent of the world’s food is generated from only 12 plants and 5 animal species, making the global food system highly vulnerable to shocks, biodiversity is key to smallholder systems who keep many climate-resilient varieties and breeds alive.
