Forest and Farm Facility

The Forest and Farm Facility provides direct financial support and technical assistance to strengthen forest and farm producer organizations representing smallholders, rural women’s groups, local communities and indigenous peoples’ institutions.

A partnership between FAO, IIED, IUCN and Agricord, the Forest and Farm Facility is funded by the EU through the FAO-EU FLEGT programme, Finland, Germany, Norway through the Flexible Multi-Partner Mechanism of FAO, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the United States of America.
