In the area of Policy Advocacy, we aimed at influencing key inter-governmental regional and international decision-making bodies on common agricultural issues affecting small farmers.
We targeted various inter-government bodies, such as ASEAN (on the frameworks on food security and climate change, as well as FTAs), FAO, IFAD, UNFCCC (on climate financing for adaptation and mitigation), and WB (on the GAFSP project).
