Farmers’ Forum is an on-going, bottom-up process of consultation and dialogue between small farmers’ and rural producers’ organizations (FOs), IFAD and governments, focused on agricultural and rural development and poverty reduction.
The Forum is rooted in concrete partnerships and collaborations at the country and regional levels. The Farmers’ Forum was born in 2005 and it meets every two years for a global consultation, in conjunction with the Governing Council of IFAD.
Youth in the spotlight
Following a recommendation of the 2010 Forum meeting, a special effort has been made by participating FOs and by IFAD to invite young farmers and representatives of rural youth movements. A special preparatory session is being held on Saturday, 18 February to share experiences and views of young rural people from different regions and to contribute to the formulation of successful policies and programmes.
