FAO Awards for Partnership 2023
FAO and the Nepal Agriculture Cooperative Central Federation Limited (NACCFL) in Nepal have been working together for more than a decade to strengthen agricultural systems management in the country. With more than 1139 agricultural cooperatives, the federation has provided smallholder farmers with access to markets, financial services, and training, enabling them to increase production, improve livelihoods, and contribute to the sustainability of agrifood systems in Nepal.
The first-place award recognizes the institution's ability in communicating, through policy dialogues and participation in various forums, the complex agricultural and economic issues of smallholder farmers to policymakers and promoting solutions to address hunger and malnutrition in the country.
