Strengthening institutional capacity, especially at national level, will be a core FANRPAN thrust over the next two years. Strong national nodes and dialogue platforms are the basis for FANRPAN legitimacy. A strong national node must be a platform that brings together government, private/civil society, universities/policy analysts, and farmer organisations on a roundtable based on sound evidence based issues. Evidence-based dialogue is the basis for legitimacy and credibility for all stakeholders engaging governments. The USAID, Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and Southern African Regional Poverty Network (SARPN) are FANRPAN’s strategic partners in an effort to build the institutional capacity for all stakeholders to contribute in the policy agenda for a food secure SADC. FANRPAN is grateful to the USAID for funding the national policy dialogues and the CTA for funding the publication of the newsletter.
