We Effect´s work in Moldova is part of the programme Poverty Reduction in Rural Areas and Empowerment of Civil Society Organisations, which includes support to local organisations in Bosnia Herzegovina, Albania, Kosovo and Moldova.
This programme aims to strengthen the capacities of rural cooperatives, farmer organisations and other civil society organisations to address the needs and rights of their members. The programme endeavours to strengthen farmer organisations and small farmer owned enterprises as well as support their efforts to comply with EU rules and quality requirements on agriculture production and products.
In Moldova, we work to support the National Farmers Federation by capacity building, so that they can provide better advisory support for farmers. We also support farmer groups with trainings for women and men in gender, civic and political rights as well as leadership and governance. We support farmers to understand and use the Market Information System MIS, The MIS ensures informational connection between agricultural producers and business environment.
We Effect support lobbying for improving policies for rural economic development and to the promotion of proposals toward decision makers, for example to increase the subsidy fund for agriculture.
