Free and Open Access SAFA Tool 2.2.40

The SAFA Tool 2.2.40 is designed to support the implementation of SAFA Guidelines, specifically at the supply chain assessment level. The SAFA Tool is available for anyone wanting to conduct a SAFA assessment, including agriculturalists, pastoralists, foresters, fisherman, harvesters, input suppliers, processors, traders, wholesalers and retailers, no matter how big or small. The SAFA Tool 2.1.50 was beta tested in several settings to develop this finalized Tool 2.2.40, featuring additional demand-driven functionalities, such as the possibility to add customized indicators to the default indicators already provided. Those wanting to conduct a SAFA now have an easy-to-use and flexible software package. FAO encourages and would greatly appreciate any users of the Tool to send their feedback to the SAFA Secretariat. Feedback will be anonymous and used as part of the SAFA Database under construction. Building the Database will provide information that is useful for all, especially for benchmarking individual performance.
