In the area of Policy Advocacy, we aimed at influencing key inter-governmental regional and international decision-making bodies on common agricultural issues affecting small farmers.

We targeted various inter-government bodies, such as ASEAN (on the frameworks on food security and climate change, as well as FTAs), FAO, IFAD, UNFCCC (on climate financing for adaptation and mitigation), and WB (on the GAFSP project).

We focused on priority issues, such as land and food security through SA and equitable share in market opportunities; CSO participation in design and implementation of policies, programs, projects; UN IYFF; global/regional food reserves; climate financing for adaptation and mitigation through sustainable agriculture; investments to smallholder agriculture focused on women farmers, sustainable agriculture, household food security, and value-addition.

In the area of Enterprise Development, we focused on building the capacities of AFA members to organize commodity clusters among its members, who will later engage both mainstream and alternative markets.

In the area of Knowledge Management, we strengthened our knowledge generation/capture and sharing activities in support of our policy advocacy and enterprise development efforts. We conducted knowledge sharing activities and documented various consultations. Our knowledge products became important inputs for our policy advocacy and project development activities. We also started staff capacity building to respond to our KM needs as well as those of our members.

In the area of Strengthening of AFA Governance, we focused on strengthening AFA's stakeholdership and governance systems and make it more gender sensitive.
