The event was hosted by the Confederation of Small Farmers’ and Fishers’ Organizations (PAKISAMA), an AFA member in the Philippines and was supported by the Collectif Stratégies Alimentaires (CSA) in Belgium and Agriterra in the Netherlands.

Around forty delegates coming from AFA’s member organizations as well as other farmer organizations, agri-agencies, non-government organizations and government agencies participated.

There were case presentations on small farmers marketing arrangements, inclusive business models, workshops to capture key lessons, as well as a field visit to some local agricultural cooperatives.
