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.

A summary of the BOND Romanian National Workshop "CAP&Peasants Rights -a BONDing process How can the collective grassroots mobilization bridge a human rights approach in public policies for food and agriculture? Bucharest, 1-2 June, 2019"

The workshop has been organized at the doorsteps of the Romanian Parliament in Bucharest, where between 3-4 June, 2019, the EU ministers for agriculture have come together in an informal meeting under the EU Presidency of Romania.
The two day event has brought together more than 100 participants from Romania and Eastern Europe, many of them small farmers and agroecological food producers (members of Eco Ruralis and other peasant organizations member of the European Coordination Via Campesina), but also civil society representatives from social and environmental organizations like Friends of the Earth, WWF, Bankwatch and even some international guests from women seed savers organization of Kyrgyzstan (ADI) and the Turkish Peasant Movement (Ciftci Sen).
The first day was dedicated for strengthening the already established Eastern European Food Sovereignty network and debating on how farmers organizations can collaborate and use the UN Declaration on the Rights of Peasants to strenghten their national representation and policy frameworks.
The first day has ended with discussions between participants, where in parallel groups, they identified the main constrains in their regional contexts and identified local solutions. It was a space of exchange and creating synergy for future collaboration. The second day represented the highlight of the Workshop. It was designed as a multi-stakeholder space of debate, using the outcomes of the previous day, but also enriching it through going deeper in creating a common strategy. Thus, the stage has been opened by several high level speakers that introduced and explained the above mentioned international processes and their national and regional relevance.
