The reality, needs and concerns of members
Key stone report
A basic principle behind the FACT approach is that the work of farmers’ organisations is based on membership consultation to ensure that the organisation is democratically controlled by its members.
The FACT approach counts on farmers being the ones who better know their reality and context. Therefore, every proposal of a ‘solution’ to their problems should take into account their knowledge, their concerns and their aspirations
The success largely depends on the will and disposition of the farmers’ organisations to incorporate the FACT concepts defined in their follow-up plan in their daily work.
Consultations of membership: Well-documented and registered membership consultations.
Participatory research: in order to systematize the results and desk research to substantiate the proposals.
Writing SMART proposals: elaboration of technically well prepared positions or proposals (policies, economic proposals etc.).
Lobby mapping & Stakeholders analysis for a successful lobby /advocacy and negotiation of proposals.
