Overview of results FFP ASEAN (2015-2020)
In South-East Asia, colleagues from the Regional Asian Farmers’ Association (AFA), national farmer organisations and staff from several agri-agencies joined efforts and helped farmers and their businesses to thrive – and to remain resilient in the face of extreme weather conditions and COVID-19. The FOs showed remarkable entrepreneurial spirit and adaptability. They showed their willingness to persevere, to start over again and build back better.
The Farmers Fighting Poverty ASEAN program illustrates this, and was implemented in South East Asia during 2015–2020. This programme represented an investment of 6.7 million euros, which was co-financed by the EU with the technical management of IFAD.
