2020 Call for Proposals on “Promotion of Family Farming” in West Africa

2020 Call for Proposals on “Promotion of Family Farming” in West Africa

Deadline: 24 February 2020

The Fondation de France and the French Committee for International Solidarity (CFSI) has announced a 2020 Call for Projects “Promotion of Family Farming in West Africa” to promote local initiatives to increase access to food through viable and sustainable West African family farming, to share the gains on a larger scale and to contribute documentation of the sustainability of this agricultural model that is likely to challenge decision-makers to take these issues into account in public policies.

The program supports projects which take into account both the following themes:

  • Connecting family farming to urban and rural markets/promoting the consumption of local products:
    • how can local family farming supply domestic markets and feed the cities –big or medium ones– and rural settlements? How can it compete with imported products and regain a share of urban markets? How to boost the consumption of local products? How can the rural population live decently from family farming activities? How can producers, processors, merchants and consumers cooperate for mutual benefits?
  • Developing methods of sustainable agriculture/ sustainable food systems:
    • Is it possible to meet the challenge “Feeding the towns, now and in 2050, through family farming” by developing sustainable agriculture? How can family farming adapt to climate change? How can it contribute to preserving natural resources and biodiversity – whether in the phase of production, processing or marketing?

Priority Questions in 2020

As in 2019, the 2020 call for proposals exclusively targets innovations specific to the connection with mass markets. Accordingly, in 2020, only the projects addressing, in an innovative and precise way, one or several of the following priority questions will be selected:

  • how to go beyond the niche markets? Whether through institutional purchases?
