In Derio, Spain, on 20 and 21 February 2018, the World Rural Forum, with other Partners in GFAR, will launch a GFAR Collective Action for “Enhancing participatory processes between Family Farmers, Civil Society/Rural Communities, Research Institutes”, to continue to strengthen the participation of family farmers, civil society organizations, rural communities and their small and medium enterprises in research processes – an agenda long championed through GFAR’s collective actions.


To demonstrate the effectiveness of real collaboration in the field and the impacts for rural communities, it is also essential to be able to monitor and measure the impacts of these partnerships between farmers and research for innovation.  Download here:  Communication Toolkit for Participatory Research (1173 downloads)
