About Farmlisty™ Global AgriBusiness Supply Alliance
“Over three-quarters of the world’s poor live in rural areas and many of them depend on agriculture to make a living. More and better employment opportunities will need to be created for rural populations and youths in Agricultural communities. This will be essential for the fight against hunger and poverty and for creating more prosperous livelihoods for the population at large. Workers with insecure jobs and subject to hazardous working conditions tend to be less productive and risk their health, which may trap them and their families in poverty”, The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)
According to FAO, decent employment is defined as work that provides a living income and reasonable working conditions. Work should be remunerative and dignified. It should enable people – whether through self-employment or wage labour – to provide for themselves and their families. Workers should be able to perform their work under safe and healthy conditions and have a voice in the workplace.
In accordance with FAO, Farmlisty™ Global AgriBusiness Supply Alliance supports communities to promote decent employment in agriculture and rural areas. The Farmlisty™ Global Alliance platform is powered by Equipplex & Associates LTD. Reg. 12290363, a UK entity providing Technology Solution to Industry. Farmlisty™ was inspired by the mission of The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and shares a similar agenda. Farmlisty™ is all about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the agricultural sector, with a focus on the developing world. Farmlisty™ provides a platform for a community of eco-friendly stakeholders: buyers & sellers in the global Agribusiness space that share in our ethos.
