Project funders

The French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement - AFD) and the French Facility for Global Environment (Fonds Français pour l’Environnement Mondial - FFEM) have decided to jointly finance a project to support the development of fair trade in West Africa, by encouraging innovative approaches based on both fair trade and the preservation of biodiversity.

Organisations responsible for the implementation

The implementation of the project will be carried out by a consortium composed by the NGO’s Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières - AVSF), as the leading organisation, and Fairtrade Africa – West African Network (FTA-WAN).

Agronomists and Veterinarians Without Borders (Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières - AVSF) is an international NGO, acting since 1977 to support smallholder’s agriculture. It is committed to support fair trade, which is seen as a good way to enhance producers’ organisations and networks. AVSF has participated to the development of many certifying labels, such as Max Havelaar France (Fairtrade), Ecocert Equitable, or the Small Producers’ Symbol.  Thanks to its strong experience in producers’ organisations capacity building, and its cooperation with about 20 countries, AVSF will provide its expertise in the field, to ensure this project’s relevance and good execution.​

The Fairtrade Africa - West Africa Network (FTA-WAN) is the antenna of Fairtrade Africa for the West African sub region and to date consists of 135 certified Fairtrade/Max Havelaar cooperatives in 8 countries (Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Cameroon, Benin and Togo).
