About BOND

Bringing Organisations & Network Development to higher levels in the Farming sector in Europe

BOND acknowledges the fundamental role farmers and land managers play in the environmental and economic sustainability of the farming sector in Europe, as well as the importance of the way they organise, on Europe’s foods and landscapes. BOND contributes to unleash, strengthen, and organise, the great potential for collective action and networking of individuals, groups and entities of farmers and land managers, focusing on countries with lower organisation levels, with a view to creating strong, dynamic and effective organizations that have a voice and a place in policy design.

FAO Regional Dialogue on Partnerships for Sustainable Food and Agriculture - 24-25 October, European Youth Center, Budapest

Multi-stakeholder partnerships (partnerships that are composed of a variety of actors: farmer organizations, civil societies, NGOs, decision-makers, academia, private sector etc.) for sustainable food systems and agriculture have paramount importance for the development of local and regional climate change adaptation strategies. Since the FAO supports and puts a special emphasis on the creation of such partnerships, the Hungarian Regional Office of the FAO brought together the major agricultural actors of the European and Central Asian region in order to start a constructive dialogue on partnership development. A two-day workshop was organized in Budapest on the 24-25th of October. Védegylet, representing civil society, also participated in the event.
Best practices and key factors that contribute to successful partnerships were presented and discussed by four international organizations: EIT Climate-KIC, International Sustainability, and Carbon Certification, EIP-Agri and the Transnational Institute. One of the key components, for instance, is to find tailor-made, context-specific solutions with a territorial and holistic approach considering the needs of all stakeholders instead of adopting the ’one-size fits all’ approach. Moreover, it is essential that all actors are involved in the knowledge co-creation process in order to get to know each other’s specific objectives, problems, and benefits from the partnership which builds trust between the stakeholders.
The workshop resulted in the creation of three concrete project ideas involving multi-stakeholder partnerships that are fit to be implemented in one of the countries of the European and Central Asian region.
