The Institution Building Challenge: National Workshop on FPOs

  About the workshop

 

This national workshop focused on institution building challenges of Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs) is a continuation of IRMA’s efforts in three areas: building knowledge on contemporary FPOs, building capacities, and co-creating an enabling ecosystem. 

The workshop was jointly supported by projects to IRMA from Ford Foundation ("Living Farm Incomes: Inequality, Sustainability and Civic Action in India") and from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) (under the project “Creating a Social Entrepreneurial Ecosystem through the Incubator”)
