The overall objective of the program is to contribute to the sustainable development of the agricultural sector and to improve the technical, financial and commercial capacities of family farms in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America through the strengthening of Professional Agricultural Organizations (PAOs) and their sustainability.
This AgriCord programme is being financed by the Agence française de développement (AFD).
The SEPOP programme consists of 17 projects in Africa and Latin America. The projects are implemented by 8 member agri-agencies and trusted Farmer Organizations on the national, subnational and local level ranging from country-wide federations to primary producer cooperatives.
The programme has two specific objectives that simultaneously contribute to the strengthening of FOs, 1) to improve the quality, deployment and sustainability of the services offered to their members (farms and family farmers); and 2) to strengthen their legitimacy and their involvement in the elaboration and implementation of inclusive, sustainable and co-managed public policies.
