  11. 11. FAFO’s approach • The forum process starts with national-level consultations that feed into regional or sub- regional meetings. The latter shape the content of, and participation at, the farmers’ forum at the IFAD Governing Council. • The forum process should feed into IFAD’s governing bodies. • The forum’s success depends on IFAD’s capacity to enhance country-level consultation with farmers’ organizations and contribute to their capacity-building needs. • Participants recommend, in particular, institutionalizing engagement with farmers’ organizations in key IFAD operational processes (projects, and country and regional strategies).
