The World Rural Forum (WRF) invites interested individuals to attend the first seminar of the series Rural Women and Cooperativism on 24 March 2022. The event will showcase the experiences of three farming groups or cooperatives in South America [Confederación de Organizaciones de Productores Familiares del MERCOSUR (COPROFAM)], Central Africa [Plateforme Régionale des Organisations Paysannes d’Afrique Centrale (PROPAC)], and Southeast Asia [Asian Farmers’ Association for Sustainable Rural Development (AFA)].
