Farmer organisations play a critical role in ensuring that the complex and dynamic developments that lie ahead “don’t leave smallholder farmers behind, so that they can manage the risks, and opportunities, that come with the future,” says Ishmael Sunga, CEO of the Southern African Confederation of Agricultural Unions (SACAU).

In this conversation between Ishmael Sunga and Francesco Rampa, ECDPM’s Head of the Food Security Programme, at this year’s FoodFIRST conference, the CEO of SACAU explains that the modernisation of African farmers’ organisations  needs to include the use public-private partnerships, improvement of logistics, and the use of digital solutions for issues like training, so that it becomes more accessible at a lesser cost.
