    Addressing the gathering at the ministerial forum of the conference, Lyonpo highlighted the key role of family farming for ensuring food security, enhancing rural livelihood, environmental protection and in combating poverty. He mentioned that,these small holder farmers however continue to face many risks and challenges primarily due to lack of capacity to cope with extreme weather patterns and volatile global economic situation.
