Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA)
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

The Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa (AFSA) is a Pan African platform whose member organizations comprise some 40 national networks and farmer organizations in 17 African countries. Its membership represents smallholder farmers, pastoralists, hunters and gatherers, indigenous peoples, environmentalists, and citizens. AFSA members’ collective voice aims to shape policy on the continent in community rights, family farming, promotion of traditional knowledge systems, and the management of natural resources. ASFA provides a forum for analyzing and discussing issues and actions to influence national and Africa-wide policies. AFSA values family farming systems based on agroecological and indigenous approaches to sustain food sovereignty and community livelihoods; resistance to the corporate industrialization of African agriculture; ceasing the displacement of indigenous peoples and destruction of their cultures and livelihoods; and African-driven solutions to challenging natural resource management problems and issues across the continent. New Field funding reaches AFSA through its fiscal sponsor the African Biodiversity Network (ABN).
