FAO Infographic: Agriculture and Poverty

An FAO infographic lists the hard facts when it comes to agriculture and poverty to highlight what social protection and agriculture actually can do in order to combat poverty appropriately.

Despite recent progress, still today 1 billion people are poor and around 800 million are hungry. Extreme poverty is concentrated in rural areas, and the rural poor largely rely on agriculture. In sub-Saharan Africa 66% of the income of poor small family farmers comes from agriculture.
