about amea

AMEA is one of the fastest-growing networks in the agricultural sector. Our members and partners have a shared interest in accelerating the development of professional farmer organisations.

 

Our vision is a future where farmers receive a living wage for fair working conditions that inspires the next generation to invest in sustainable farming as a business.

 

Our mission is to transform the systems that support farmers organisations and agri-SMEs to create value for farmers.

 

Our approach is to provide a platform that enables stakeholders to learn, innovate and scale up the most effective approaches for supporting farmers.

 

Our vibrant network reaches millions of smallholder farmers in more than 80 countries. AMEA members and partners create a supportive ecosystem for farmer organisations by delivering collaborative system change strategies. We work towards inclusive and sustainable growth by improving and better coordinating the business development services for Farmer Organizations and Agri-SMEs which in turn, creates added value for farmers.
