Leveraging opportunities for farmer’s organisations to enhance their impact

On Wednesday, 21 September 2016, Dr Theo de Jager, President of the Pan-African Farmers' Organization (PAFO), Ignace Coussement, Managing Director of AgriCord, and Michael Hailu, Director of CTA, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Strategic partnership supporting capacity development of African farmer's organisations through improved policies, technologies and capabilities. The signing took place at a ceremony at the Secretariat of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), in Brussels. Under the MoU, CTA and AgriCord will support PAFO, its five regional members and their national members in collecting and using data on precision agriculture – so-called 'smart farming.' This will help these farmers' organisations to support the development of inclusive value chains, with special attention to the needs of youth. The MoU provides a framework for developing a strategic technical and financial partnership that will leverage opportunities for farmer's organisations to enhance their impact.
