FANRPAN Stakeholder Directory 2005
2005 - 2006

The FANRPAN stakeholder directory is intended to bring together the network stakeholders. The list is drawn from all stakeholders who have engaged with the network through meetings, workshops and other modes of communication. Users are encouraged to use this directory to assist in communicating among themselves in-country, regionally and globally.

Who are the stakeholders of the FANRPAN network? The strength of the network is its country platforms or nodes whose membership comprise government; farmer organisations; research institutions; private sector; academic institutions of higher learning; policy makers and the private sector. FANRPAN works through its nodes in 11 countries; facilitating networking on food, agriculture and natural resources issues among the mainland SADC countries. The nodes are coordinated by a regional secretariate that is based in South Africa. FANRPAN thrives to ensure that network stakeholders continue to meet, engage in dialogue, inform the research agenda and contribute to the process of establishing a conducive policy environment for the food; agriculture and natural resources sector.

About the directory. This directory was developed in a three stage process that involved collecting information on FANRPAN’s stakeholders, designing a web-based data storage system, and compiling this printable version. This version, therefore complements the web-based search engine ( that has additional information on contacts. It paves the way to ensuring that professionals that have been in touch through the network keep doing so.

How does one use the directory? To enhance usability, this directory has an alphabetical listing of stakeholders as well as a table of contents that can aid the user to search contacts by geographical location. Additional information on the contacts is available on the FANRPAN website.

FANRPAN appreciates that stakeholders often move from one organisation to the other; and have therefore developed the web version of the directory as an interactive database where stakeholders have the opportunity to update their own details. FANRPAN will also host a chat and e-forum to encourage debate on topical issues on food, agriculture and natural resources today.
