AGRITERRA's "work is based on the conviction that if farmers organise themselves, they will be able to take the responsibility of their development into their own hands. Strong and representative agricultural organisations are indispensable for the promotion of democracy, for a better distribution of income and for the economic development of a country." www.agriterra.org
(Worldwide a strategic partnership is established with IFAP)

AGRICORD The national farmers' organisations of Belgium, Canada (Quebec), Finland, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden join in AgriCord, and support "Farmers Fighting Poverty", with the conviction that only by working together can farmers break their isolation, enter the market place and pull themselves out of poverty. Farmers' own organisations can provide farm and business services, institutional access, confidence and voice to their poor members.
For this reason, we work to build stronger farmers' organisations
together with our fellow farmers in the rural areas of developing
countries. This is not an easy task in often challenging environments.
Investments have to be made with a long term view, and we thank our
donors for supporting this effort." www.agricord.org/
"AgriCord uses AgriPool to indentify and realise international farmer-to-farmer cooperation. Therefore AgriCord can rely on expertise of members and employees of farmers' organisations as managed by Agriterra." www.agripool.orgAgrisud International, "Fighting poverty through enterprise"
UPA Développement International (UPA DI) "is a not-for-profit corporation founded in 1993 by Quebec’s Union of agricultural producers called Union des producteurs agricoles (UPA). Its purpose is to extend, around the world, the solidarity that Quebec producers have been weaving into their professional organization for more than eight decades. UPA DI establishes partnerships with African, Latin American and Asian farmer organizations in order to reinforce their ability to act collectively for the development of agriculture and for the greater well-being of farm families. This involvement stems from the realization that the future of each farm family is intimately linked with that of millions of others throughout the world. The liberalization of commerce and trade on the world market is a source of increasing pressure on agriculture in both the South and the North. In this context, the sustainable development of agriculture can only take place by globalizing farmers’ solidarity movements." www.upadi-agri.org
