FANRPAN's Women Accessing Realigned Markets (WARM) Project to Convene a National Policy Dialogue in Maputo, Mozambique on the 26th of April 2012
24 April 2012


The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) in partnership with the Faculty of Agronomy and Forestry Engineering of Eduardo Mondlane University will convene a national policy dialogue on the 26th of April at Kaya Kwanga Lodge in Maputo, Mozambique.

The purpose of the dialogue is to disseminate results from the FANRPAN pilot project, Women Accessing Realigned Markets (WARM) which seeks to strengthen the capacity of women farmers to influence agricultural policy development in Africa. The national dialogue will receive results of an agricultural survey of women farmers in Marracuane and Boane Districts as well as a report of a study that was conducted to analyse the input distribution systems and policies in Mozambique.

Women farmers who have been trained to be policy advocates will also participate in the dialogue and will showcase the Theatre for Policy Advocacy (TPA) methodology that has been used by the project to engage community leaders, service providers and policy makers to dialogue on challenges faced by women farmers in accessing agriculture markets and to come up with solutions for these challenges.

Participants at the dialogue will include women farmers, representatives from the Ministry of Agriculture (MINAG), researchers from Eduardo Mondlane University, representatives of NGOs and Community Based Organisations, representatives from the CGIAR Institutions based in Maputo, representatives of UN-Agencies and the donor community in Mozambique.
