Asian Farmers Association for Sustainable Rural Development
AFA is a Asian alliance of national farmers organizations composed of small scale women and men family farmers, fishers, indigenous peoples, forest users, herders, and pastoralists. We were established in 2002 after a series of farmers’ exchange visits organized by AsiaDHRRA, a partner Asian regional NGO. In these exchange visits, conducted over three years, we saw the great need to come together to share, learn and act on our common desire for a better quality of life for ourselves, our families, and our farming communities.
