West African farmers’ platforms and international solidarity organisations from the North come together to influence ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly policies

West African farmers’ platforms and international solidarity organisations from the North come together to influence ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly policies
N°26

Over the course of a three year campaign (2006-2008) called «Alimen-Terre», which was co-financed by the EU and coordinated by the CFSI1, SOS Faim and four West African farmer platforms (FP) developed a particularly close collaborative relationship. The FPs are the Confédération Paysanne du Faso (CPF), the Coordination Nationale des Organisations Paysannes du Mali (CNOP), Plate-Forme Paysanne Nationale du Niger (PFPN), and the Conseil National de Concertation et de Coopération des
Ruraux (CNCR), from Senegal. Through seminars, field visits and the sharing of experiences among international solidarity organisations from the North and farmers’ representatives from the South, as well as of European agricultural organisations, common positions and proposals emerged to together defend family farming, both in the South and the North.
