Organic Farm Knowledge: a new cooperation with the FAO (IT)


Partnerships and collaborations are an essential to creating lasting change. In the past few months, the Organic Farm Knowledge team and the FAO Agroecology Knowledge Hub and Family Farming Knoweldge Platform (OFK) teams have built a partnership to reach the common goal of promoting more sustainable and equitable farming practices and food system. The synergistic partnership has allowed Organic Farm Knowledge to further its outreach, reaching more farmers and practitioners worldwide.

The Organic Farm Knowledge platform is now featured in the database of both the Agroecology Hub and the Family Farming Knoweldge Platform. Additonally, OFK partake in the Global Family Farming & Agroecology Community of Practice (CoP), an e-mail group that brings together people committed to working on family farming and agroecology related issues allowing them to share and co-create information, knowledge and advice in order to achieve sustainable agriculture and food systems. Currently, there are more than 1000 members subscribed from 110 different countries. In addition to the Global CoP, the FAO also hosts two sub-communities for Africa, and Latin America and Caribbean Regions (LAC).
