Farmers organisations are formal or informal member based associations that are democratically organised from the grassroots level up.
They provide multiple services to their members such as technical support for sustainable practices, market development and access, policy influencing or cultural services.
Our farmers organisations partners represent smallholders in the global south. These organisations also represent the millions of smallholders who are responding to climate change by establishing resilient farming systems and producing a third of the world's food.
Indigenous peoples accros the globe have their own governance system with their traditional representation system. They form territorial organisations around the world representing millions of indigenous peoples.
Science has proven that forests are better managed by indigenous peoples for biodiversity and climate resilience.
Supporting territorial organisations in their fight for their land rights, free and prior informed consent, direct financing, end of criminalisation and protection of their life along protection and respect of their traditional knowledge is something that FFORA is also committed to.
