This Regional Action Plan aims at facilitating and accelerating the process of developing national action plans through inclusive multi-stakeholder processes, not only putting family farmers at the centre but recognizing them as critical partners. The consultation was attended by 75+ representatives from SAARC member states, farmers’ organizations and cooperatives. The event was very successful. Five SAARC countries as well as the director of Agriculture and Rural Development and SAARC Development Fund (ARD and SDF) from the SAARC Secretariat issued supportive
statements and committed to further support the implementation of the Regional Action Plan.
