sacau sThe Southern African Confederation of Agricultural Unions (SACAU) is a RFO whose membership is open to national farmers' unions/associations representing both small scale and large scale farmers voluntarily joining them in southern Africa. Currently SACAU has 16 members from 12 countries in the region.

The vision of SACAU is to bring about a vibrant, prosperous and sustainable farming sector that ensures food security and contributes to economic growth in Southern Africa. Its mission is to promote and ensure strong and effective farmers' organisations in all countries in Southern Africa, and to be the main voice of farmers on regional, continental and global matters.
SACAU's Strategic Framework is based on three strategic pillars, namely:
(i) policy advocacy on regional, continental and global matters;
(ii) strengthening of the capacity of farmers' organizations
(iii) provision of agriculture-related information. Cross cutting issues such as gender, environment and HIV/AIDS are also considered as critical areas of focus in the strategy.
roppa sThe birth of Réseau des Organisations Paysannes et de Producteurs de l'Afrique de l'Ouest (ROPPA) in 2000 was the culmination of a long process and an organisational effort within the farmers' movement in Western Africa. ROPPA's objective is to strengthen the capacities of African FOs to defend the interests of their members and to influence the policies linked to agriculture, rural development and food security.

Despite its young age, ROPPA achieved two main results: 1) The establishment of an organisation representing Western African producers in 16 countries. Thanks to advocacy and lobbying activities implemented in favour of family farming, food sovereignty and solidary regional and international trade ROPPA, with the help of several partners, developed an offensive strategy allowing to positively influencing regional agricultural policies at all levels. 2) ROPPA's national members. Overall, in the twelve countries of the ECOWAS progress has been achieved over the past ten years in the involvement of FOs in both the preparation of national policies and in the implementation of agricultural programs.
