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. Collectively, forest and farm producers have the potential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and to respond to climate change at landscape scales. A partnership between FAO, IIED, IUCN and Agricord, the Forest and Farm Facility is funded by Finland, Germany, Norway through the Flexible Multi-Partner Mechanism of FAO, Sweden, the Netherlands, the United States of America, and IKEA.


The conference will be an occasion for sharing and learning common challenges and lessons learnt on developing climate-resilience business models with forest and farm producer organisations. How business models can foster diversification – not uniformity.
Join us on the 1st of June at Sida in Stockholm, for a day filled with experiences from the ground on the agency of farmer and forest associations, Indigenous Peoples and local communities, youth and women in the climate, biodiversity and food security crises.
