The Ethiopia Local Network has been active since 2018 and is currently led by Cordaid. The network has eight official members (six global, two local) and a number of organisations engaged on thematic interest. Our vision is to cultivate a local network with active membership and strong internal and external linkages, that applies the AMEA Framework toward the goal of accelerating the development of professional farmer organisations.
