The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) is a regional multi-stakeholder network formed in response to a call by Agriculture Ministers in the East and Southern Africa region for a network that could provide independent evidence to inform policy harmonization at regional level (see for details).

The network is representative of key stakeholders in the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANR) sector Africa-wide, which include governments, farmer organizations, researchers, the private sector, parliamentarians and the media. FANRPAN currently works in 16 countries: Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

FANRPAN Thematic Thrusts

  • Agriculture Inputs and Outputs Markets
  • Food systems
  • Institutional Strengthening
  • Natural Resources and Environment
  • Social Protection and Livelihoods
NAMC as a Node Host

A node hosting institution is expected to be an organisation that:

  • Is recognised and formally registered to operate in the country;
  • Has a primary focus and track record on generating evidence to inform FANRPAN policy development;
  • Has “good chemistry” with and is endorsed by the national government;
  • Has convening power across the entire range of FANR stakeholders; and
  • Has the infrastructure (human and financial resources and governance) to be the FANRPAN node hosting institution.
