Achieving more together: empowered forest and farm producer organizations
Getting organized puts smallholders in charge. Through farmers groups, cooperatives and networks, forest and farm producers can help each other not only through marketing advantages and access to finance, but also through the exchange of knowledge and experiences, increased bargaining power, and a stronger voice in national decision-making.
The Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) works at national level to strengthen producer organizations for smallholders, women, communities and indigenous peoples in order to improve business, livelihoods and policy engagement. At regional and global level, the FFF works to help forest and farm producer organizations play a more strategic role by linking local voices and learning to global processes.
