The vision for M‐RIU includes the empowerment of farmers through strengthening of smallholder farmer organisations to become truly representative of their members to provide equal opportunities and benefits for all members; play an effective role on commodity‐based innovation platforms negotiating as equal partners, articulating their demands and holding each other accountable; provide greater benefits to members than operating individually.
The purpose of the status brief on farmer empowerment learning group is:
- To provide M-RIU with a concise starting point for its future work in
relation to farmer empowerment;
- To brief the proposed farmer empowerment/organisation learning group
about major issues on which they should consider working in relation
to farmer empowerment.
