WorldFMC as one of FAO’s 10 Food Coalition Projects

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) emerged from the G20 with some key outcomes, including their Food Coalition’s Call for Proposals, in which they selected ten proposals focused on improving our food system. We are honored to share that the World Farmers Markets Coalition (WorldFMC) was selected to be one of these projects, alongside other incredible projects worldwide.

This project involves the following partners: Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies (Italy), Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Italy), United States Department of Agriculture (USA), and Ghana Central Regional Coordinating Council – Department of Food and Agriculture (Ghana), Coldiretti Fondazione Campagna Amica (Italy), Centro Studi Divulga (Italy), Farmers Market Coalition (USA), Bondens Marked (Norway), and Central Regional Apex Farmers Association (CRAFA, Ghana).

WorldFMC’s objective in this project is to promote farmers’ market models that better engage small-scale producers as agents of change in the agri-food system. The scope of our work will involve continuing to develop our network of farmers markets worldwide, while also supporting farmers and their organizations in the form of capacity building programs.

Our work for this project directly connects with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals: 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13 (see below). If you are interested in learning more about the specifics of our project – visit FAO’s Food Coalition website – here.
