Central Africa

Plateforme Sous-Régionale des organisations Paysannes d'Afrique Central (PROPACis a regional organization founded in 2005, bringing together 10 farmers’ organizations in the countries of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) region – Angola, Burundi, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Sao Tome and Principe. Farmers’ organizations in Central Africa are relatively young – most were created in the 2000s as a result of the farmers’ movement in Central Africa. The institutionalization of these platforms is currently being finalized. The credibility they achieved has led to the multiplication of partners, involvement in government programmes and a presence in decision-making bodies.

PROPAC has a vision of “family farming being enterprising, sustainable and modernized in order to ensure the economic, social, cultural and ecological functions for food security and sovereignty.”

Its purpose is to harmonize the strategies and actions of Central African national FOs to address their concerns in the development, implementation and evaluation of policies and strategies for agricultural and rural development at all levels.

PROPAC’s interventions are based on four axes as detailed in their 2013 - 2017 strategic plan:

  (i) support to FOs’ structuring and strategic planning;

  (ii) institutional capacity-building of FOs;

  (iii) promoting women’s leadership and economic activities of FOs;

  (iv) representation and defence of the interests of small producers.

The table below shows PROPAC's membership at the national level. The six national organisations directly covered by the SFOAP are highlighted in orange.
