One of the things that producer organizations can do so they don’t lose focus is to build their capacity- make sure they understand their role in farm forestry and keep on refreshing that. They also should work with government and other stakeholders to share experiences.

Estas subvenciones servirán para que numerosas redes nacionales y diferentes redes internacionales que representan a los productores forestales y agrícolas se vinculen con los titulares de derechos forestales para impulsar una agenda compartida, dar a conocer historias de éxito locales entre los encargados de tomar decisiones a nivel mundial a fin de facilitar el éxito de las inversiones a nivel local, y ayudar a dar forma a las políticas y acciones internacionales y nacionales a través del intercambio de conocimientos y experiencias entre los productores forestales y agrícolas locales.
