Country partnerships

Country partnerships unite producers across different sectors who are based in the same country. The partnerships help producers take advantage of local market and support opportunities, while providing a platform to advocate for relevant changes in local policies. They also ensure that Fairtrade producers are effectively represented within the Fairtrade system.

Aims of county partnerships

  • To provide a platform where producers can network amongst themselves and with other development stakeholders
  • To ensure that Fairtrade producers are effectively represented within the Fairtrade system via Fairtrade Africa
  • To enable effective coordination on Fairtrade standards development and review

While the regional and product networks are set up by Fairtrade Africa, producers are expected to initiate country networks – with support from Fairtrade Africa.

Check with your Head of Region  if a partnership is active in your country.
