      Support to strengthen national capacities of Producer Organizations in the NENA Region
      2017
      2018
      400,000
      Strengthened producer organizations (POs) can help SSFF overcome the barriers they face and develop innovative organizational arrangements that broaden their capabilities. Given the wide range of services that inclusive and efficient POs can provide to their members, these organizations are essential for a thriving agricultural sector and for boosting rural economies. They enable farmers to benefit from an array of services including access and management of natural resources, markets, credits, inputs and information as well as influencing policy-making processes. POs are a vehicle to encourage rural populations to remain in their territories instead of migrating to urban centers or to other countries. For this, governments have a critical role to play in creating conducive conditions by enabling collective action of producers to form and thrive. These conditions include developing transparent and sound regulatory frameworks, a conducive investment climate, as well as facilitating the creation of frameworks and policy dialogue spaces between governments and various stakeholders.
