BACKGROUND

Since its establishment in 1997, the ASEAN Foundation (AF) has supported various agricultural projects through the Japan-ASEAN Solidarity Fund (JASF). In line with its mandate to address socio-economic disparities and alleviate poverty as well as to develop human resources and capacity building, AF continues and is committed to supporting farmers, rural entrepreneurs and agricultural workers which are essentially the backbone of the ASEAN community. To date, AF has funded 25 agriculture related projects with a total budget of USD 3.8 million.

Over the years, AF has also established networks with key agricultural players in the region such as the Asian Partnership for the Development of Human Resources in Rural Asia (AsiaDHRRA), Asian Farmers’ Association for Sustainable Rural Development (AFA), Network of Aquaculture Centers in Asia Pacific, ASEAN Fisheries Working Group, Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture established by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO), Regional Volunteer Experts for Agricultural Modernisation, and Southeast Asian Council for Food and Security and Fair Trade (SEACON).

With the launch of the ASEAN Community in 2015 and to help moving forward the objective of ASEAN 2025 which calls for an inclusive Community that is people-oriented and engaging, AF currently works on facilitating and coordinating the engagement and participation of the ASEAN farmers in the ASEAN processes and mechanisms through the ASEAN Farmers’ Organisations Support Programme (AFOSP), a multi-stakeholder project funded by the European Union (EU) and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) under the consortium of the Asian Farmers’ Association for Sustainable Rural Development (AFA) and La Via Campesina (LVC).

AFOSP – Engaging with ASEAN

The role of the ASEAN Foundation (AF) in AFOSP falls into the key activities focusing on promoting policy dialogues and interactions between farmers, rural organizations, and the ASEAN level institutions. The overall mandate of AF is to actualize and to energize the ASEAN Blueprint especially the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community (ASCC) blueprint. Specifically, the key role of AF is to bridge the coordination between the relevant sectoral ASEAN bodies in support of AFOSP, such as those under the ASEAN Ministers Meeting on Agriculture and Forestry (AMAF) and ASEAN Ministers Meeting on Rural Development and Poverty Eradication (AMRDPE); and to facilitate the engagement and participation of the ASEAN farmers in the regional policy-making processes.
