With a far flung reputation for building up farmers organisations in Cameroon, the organ known as the Network for Farmers Agriculture and Modernisation in Africa/ Cameroon (APM/Cameroon) has joined CTA in a partnership agreement. Up to October 2002, it will undertake a pilot project to record and draw upon farmers experiences and optimise their exchange through appropriate information channels. In the pilot project, which has an intensity that is not for the weak of heart or spirit, various farmers organisations will be encouraged and empowered to share information, and develop various forms of cooperation such as alliances, common platforms and geographical and thematic networks. Their skills in the management and communication of information will be harnessed and strengthened around the production of 30 programmes for rural and regional radio stations; the production of a film on the nation s farmer movement; the organisation of study trips, exchange visits and four training workshops; the co-organisation of a national workshop; the publication of profiles of six farmers organisations; the production of 30 leaflets about concrete experiences, of which two will be developed into more substantial volumes. It is expected that this pilot project will provide a wealth of material on the dynamics of partnership building within a country or region, the role of lead or pilot agencies, and the relationship with external resources.
