Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are vital for the development of agriculture. But we all still have a lot to learn about them. That's why the Syngenta Foundation helped set up AgPartnerXChange. This innovative platform aims to improve capacity for PPPs that engage smallholders, worldwide. Come and see for yourself.
Looking back and forwards with smallholders
2014 was the Year of Family Farming. Smallholder households are at the heart of our work. Here are some portraits of family farmers with whom we and our partners work, for example in Peru, India, Kenya and Bangladesh. And here's a young man whom we're helping to guide his fellow farmers. You'll find a couple more smallholder portraits on our Stories page.
All best wishes!
The Syngenta Foundation all our readers a happy and healthy 2015, and to all those who celebrate it, a most enjoyable Christmas.
