Participants attending the meeting included the SC members (the representatives from the five regional farmers’ organisations (RFOs) and representatives from the European Union (EU), IFAD, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation – SDC, and the Agence Française de Développement - AFD) and observers (representatives from FAO and AgriCord).
