Farming First - A platform

I share with you a very interesting knowledge and position platform called Farming First http://www.farmingfirst.org/ Farming First proposes six principles (below) from which to drive policies and activities that can benefit farmers globally. Once you go into details of each principle, we can see that an preliminary proposal http://hondudemocracia.blogspot.com/2009/11/como-alimentar-honduras-y-el-mundopor.html I made a couple of days ago, is quite consistent with this effort.

The Farming First Principle are:

   1. Safeguard natural resources
   2. Share knowledge
   3. Build local access and capacity
   4. Protect harvests
   5. Enable access to markets
   6. Prioritise research imperatives
