The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and the Pan African Farmers Organization (PAFO) have signed a partnership agreement to strengthen capacities of African farmer’s organizations by providing efficient services to small holder farmers especially youth and women.
AGRA will support farmer organizations drive policy issues affecting them by scaling them at national, regional, and continental level. The policy issues to be tackled will be aligned to the Africa Agriculture Transformation Scorecard and the Malabo declaration which provide a framework for an inclusive agricultural transformation in Africa.
In the new AFRACA Strategic Plan (2021-2025), AFRACA will work closely with farmer organizations across Africa, advocate for key policy issues and increase its work towards youth & women by changing their attitudes towards Agriculture, linking financial institutions partners to projects supporting the youth and women to enable them scale up their agri-enterprises.
