WHO WE ARE
The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) is a pan-African network that provides independent evidence to inform policy processes at national and regional levels.
Our mandate is to co-ordinate policy research and dialogue and recommend strategies for promoting food, agriculture and natural resources sectors in Africa.
Through its convening power, FANRPAN organises regular national and regional policy platforms, enabling interface between policy makers, farmers’ organisations, researchers, agribusiness and civil society in co-creative policy processes. Issues raised at national level dialogues are synthesised and discussed at regional platforms, with outputs feeding into national and regional policy platforms. FANRPAN also convenes dialogues for partners, enabling them to interface with stakeholders.
Since 2001, FANRPAN has conducted annual regional policy dialogues, bringing state and non-state actors to interface on key themes derived from the pressing policy issues of the time.
