Associated Organisations

Associated members are farmers organisations that did not (yet) create an agri-agency for their development cooperation activities

An organisation, eligible to become an associated organisation within AgriCord, is either a membership based farmer's organisation, or an organisation, linked to the farmers' world, involved in the support to producer organisations in developing countries, in line with the vision and mission of AgriCord. The applying associated organisations must have the legal statute of a non-profit organisation, and must have a proven record of concrete involvement in development cooperation issues.

The associate membership is based upon a memorandum of understanding that shall be valid for a fixed period of time, which may not exceed five years, and which shall be renewable. The MOU between the associated organisation and AgriCord stipulates commitments, such as contributions, access to information, representation of the associated organization in the General Assembly of AgriCord, etc.
