GFAiR Collective Actions

To address the problematique of Forgotten Foods, and the related neglected crops, knowledge and people, GFAR has helped mobilize among its partners a vast coalition of concerned research and innovation stakeholders in Asia Pacific, Sub-Saharan Africa and Near East and North Africa by engaging Regional Research Networks. The dialogues have sought to involve farmers’ organizations from the beginning...

Partners in GFAR, and primarily the partners involved in this Collective Action (CA), recognize that the key driver towards the full realization of the benefits of the digital transformation of agriculture is the inclusion of small-scale producers in the design and governance of digital solutions, and in the negotiation of related data practices and business models.

This Collective Action aims to set up the basis – in terms of creating a network of good practices and educational models across continents  - to spearhead the transformation of formal higher education to match the new skills required for conducting co-research and co-innovation. 

This Collective Action seeks to identify the most favourable decision spaces in the context of Family Farming National Committees across the world where farmers’ organizations can mobilize their knowledge.
