New partnership will focus on developing smallholders’ capacities to tackle climate change and improve livelihoods

FAO and AgriCord, a global alliance of agri-agencies mandated by farmers’ organizations, are joining efforts to facilitate the engagement of family and smallholder farmers in decision making and policy dialogue, increase their institutional and organizational capacities and improve their access to markets and finance.

Doing so will unleash their potential in improving livelihoods and combatting climate change, FAO and AgriCord said.

Building on years of successful partnership, AgriCord and FAO signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today to intensify joint efforts aimed at building the capacities of farmer’s organizations to increase their vital role in reducing rural poverty.
