09fk-5323 - Towards an independent and growing Farmers Nature Network
Main objective of FNN is: to make FNN an independent farmers' organisation, independent from CEDAC. This requires a step wise approach and FNN and CEDAC need to identify each others core businesses and supplement each other rather than become competitors. This 3 years plan focusses on: 1) Organisational strengthening 2) Communication 3) Training & capacity building 4) Marketing & cooperative development 5) Saving & credit cooperatives 6) Lobby and advocacy It is expected that in 2009 the focus will be on organisational strengthening, training and capacity building and marketing & cooperative development AFDI will provide support for Saving & credit cooperatives. Lobby and advocacy by FNN is still weak and needs due attention.
