The Caribbean Farmers Network (CaFAN), formed in 2004, is a regional network of Farmers' Associations and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the Caribbean. CaFAN's major focus is to foster linkages, training and information sharing amongst Caribbean farmers so that they are in a better position to respond to the key challenges facing the agricultural sector in the Caribbean.
CaFAN organises training workshops, advocacy, study tours, information sharing, regional planning sessions, and produces a variety of publications.
The Caribbean Farmers Network (CaFAN) was formed with the following objectives:
- To enhance the ability of Caribbean farmers’ organizations to deliver services to members and also increase intra and extra regional trade.
- To increase communication and exchange of ideas, experiences, resources, information and technology, between and among farmers associations in the Caribbean to impact positively on the competitiveness and sustainability of the agriculture sector
- To raise awareness, improve advocacy and networking to collectively influence decisions on strategic issues affecting regional agriculture.
- To mobilize resources for and on behalf of network members.
