Programme 2: Partnership and Networking

The transformation of agri-food systems and the realization of SDGs cannot be achieved by APAARI alone. Multiple organizations from private, public and civil sectors need to be linked at local, national, sub-regional, regional and global levels to bring about large-scale change. APAARI is well positioned to connect national bodies to each other, regional and global fora, fostering partnerships and networking through face-to-face interactions and online communities. APAARI intends to contribute to partnership and networking through the following strategies:

1. Innovative and strategic partnerships and networking strengthened

Facilitate technical cooperation in key thematic areas

  • Develop public-private-community partnerships to improve efficiency of adaptation and application
    of agricultural technologies and innovations
  • Facilitate networking and collaboration between national, sub-regional, regional and global- level organizations within AFS
  • Facilitate networking and collaboration between AFS and regional and global multi- sector development partners to collectively work towards development outcomes
  • Scope and map primary stakeholders to enable
  • better targeting and stronger engagement in collective action in terms of sharing of benefits, efforts and resources

APAARI members and partners will implement these strategies, for example, through initiating and implement strategic partnerships in technical areas; bringing public, private and community sectors to expert consultations and policy dialogue; facilitating engagement between public, private and community stakeholders, as well as with regional and global partners; promoting partnership with regional and global initiatives; encouraging stakeholders to engage in existing regional and global multi-sector networks; and assessing the contribution of current and potential stakeholders to the collective action.
