The National Platform of Action for Family Farming in Côte d’Ivoire (PANAFCI) organized, from March 25 to May 10, 2019, two information and awareness raising tours for family farmers and CSOs on the scope and implications of major policies, laws and programs for the development of the agricultural sector and the implications.

A total of 459 farmers and civil society organizations participated in information and awareness-raising workshops on the scope and implications of major agricultural sector development policies, laws and programs in Côte d’Ivoire.

These workshops, initiated by PANAFCI, aimed to increase family farmers’ knowledge of the different various legal and regulatory systems that govern their field of activity and thus contribute toa better participation on their part in the formulation and implementation of these systems.

Indeed, the Ivorian agricultural sector is governed by a set of legal and institutional mechanisms designed to ensure its development. Thus in 2015, an Agricultural Orientation Law aimed at organizing the country’s agricultural policy was adopted. However, these mechanisms are little or not known to the main actors in the agricultural world made up of family farmers who live in rural areas.

These men, women and families, farmers and family farmers, are the basis of nutrition in both villages and cities, even though they are ironically the most deprived of the economic system and seem to have no possibility of recourse.

This situation challenges PANAFCI, one of whose objectives is to build the foundations and spaces for dialogue between public authorities and family farmers on the one hand and between the latter and the various development actors at the national and international levels on the other.

Abengourou workshop

The tours took place on March 25, 27 and 29 for the first phase, in the cities of Daloa/Haut-Sassandra region; Bouaké/Gbêkê region and Abengourou/ Indénié-Djuablin region; and for the second phase on May 06, 08 and 10 in the cities of Bondoukou/Gontougo region, Yamoussoukro/District of Yamoussoukro and Gagnoa/Gôh region.

In addition to members of the host regions’ platforms, each workshop brought together representatives of producer and civil society organizations from neighbouring regional platforms.

Thus, the Daloa workshop welcomed representatives from the Cavally, Gôh, Marahoué and Lôh-Djiboua regions; the Gbêkê region welcomed participants from the Poro regions, Tchologo, Aries/Yamoussoukro District and the Indénié-Djuablin region included representatives from the Mé, Gontougo, Moronou and Nzi regions.

The Bondoukou workshop welcomed the delegations of Mé, Moronou, Indénié-Djuablin and Sud Comoé; the Yamoussoukro workshop welcomed the delegations of Poro, Tchologo, Gbêkê and N’Zi; and finally, the Gagnoa workshop brought together the delegations of Cavally, Sud-Comoé, Marahoué and Loh-Djiboua.

Daloa Workshop

The workshops also recorded the participation of administrative authorities and technical structures.

During the first phase of the tour, the main facilitator, Mr. ASSOKO Maillet, Advocacy Officer at the GS of Inades-Formation, spoke to the participants about the National Development Plan (2016-2020 NDP), the second about the Agricultural Orientation Law of Côte d’Ivoire and the third about the National Agricultural Investment Programme (NIPA 2, 2017-2025).

The second phase focused on the revised National Strategy for the Development of the Rice Sector in Côte d’Ivoire (SNDR) 2012-2020; the National Strategy for the Development of Non-Rice Food Crops (SNDCV, 2014-2020); the Strategic Plan for the Development of Livestock, Fisheries and Aquaculture in Côte d’Ivoire (PSDEPA, 2014-2020).

The workshops enabled participants to familiarize themselves with and understand the contexts in which the various legal and regulatory instruments governing agriculture were drafted, the objectives of these instruments, the measures taken to implement them, the status of program implementation and the obstacles to implementation.

After each presentation, participants discussed the texts in relation to their reality and proposed measures to improve and better implement agricultural laws, policies and programs.

PANAFCI member organizations are committed to participating in agricultural development at the local, regional and national levels.

There a was general agreement that the workshops were very rewarding for all. Administrative authorities and representatives of technical structures participating for the first time in a PANAFCI activity welcomed the initiative to which they were pleased to have contributed.
