CaFAN will hold its Regional Root and Tuber Crop Production and Marketing Coordination Workshop on Friday January 29th and 30th, 2010.  The workshop is one in a series of three workshops funded under the EU All ACP Commodities Programme (EU AAACP), and is scheduled to take place in Grenada at the Grand Beach Resort.

Under the EU AAACP, CaFAN has received support from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) to coordinate capacity building activities of member farmer organizations active in the roots and tubers sector. As part of this role, the workshop is being organized to bring together representatives from five farmer organizations active in the roots and tubers sector.

The overall aim of the workshop is to improve the coordination of the roots and tubers production and marketing mini-projects being supported under the EU AAACP in the five selected countries and to develop CaFAN’s coordination and networking strategy for the implementation of this program.
