ANGOC WFD poster_web

October 16 is the celebration of World Food Day (WFD). This year’s theme is “Social Protection and Agriculture: Breaking the Cycle of Rural Poverty” recognizing the importance of stimulating production and social protection (such as economic, social, and environmental policies and programs) in reducing poverty and food insecurity in the long term.

Together with FAO, ANGOC celebrates WFD with the theme, “Fighting Landlessness and Promoting Smallholder Agriculture in Building Vibrant, Peaceful, and Diverse Rural Communities Living Harmoniously with Nature.” ANGOC realizes the role of fighting landlessness and promoting smallholder agriculture through securing land rights of farmers in attaining self-sufficiency for all – from tillers to the people, therefore alleviating the nation from poverty and providing a food-secured world.
