Partnership for Agroecology Transition, Networking, and Efficient Resilience (PArTNER)
PArTNER aims to support family farming to become more resilient. The objective is:
– To increase agricultural productivity through agroecological practices: by building farmers‧trices capacities and technical and managerial innovations, and by paying more attention to women to advance their economic autonomy, while promoting poverty reduction.
– To increase incomes, by improving agroecological product value chains, promoting access to remunerative markets, supporting family farmers‧trices in their processing and marketing activities.
– To support farmers‧ representatives in their advocacy actions towards the private sectors and the government, to promote the participation of women in decision-making spaces, and to promote coherent policies in favour of small farmers‧trices.
– To raise awareness among consumers‧trices about the consumption of healthy and safe food, contributing to improve sustainable consumption. These social actions will also promote the role of women in a healthy nutrition strategy.
– To improve knowledge management to influence policy and decision making in the area of food and in favour of the agroecological transition.
