Farmers' Organisations for Food Systems

This programme contributes to the agricultural transformation towards more resilient and inclusive food systems. Farmers' organisations as part of civil society must be key actors in shaping current food into systems fit for tomorrow. 

AgriCord's member agri-agencies provide advisory services and facilitate peer-to-peer exchanges to capacitate farmers' organisations to become strong and performant organisations capable of driving the needed changes.

The AgriCord alliance administrates this programme with the financial support of the The German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ).


The programme consists of five (5) projects in Africa implemented by eight (8) agri-agencies in collaboration with farmers' organisations on the national, subnational and local level.  

The programme is currently in the co-design phase between the agri-agencies, AgriCord and the GIZ. The details of the projects will be presented as soon as the active implementation starts.
