The FFS approach has spread and is
increasingly spreading successfully around the world. Implementing organisations increasingly receive requests from
organisations to provide training, documentation, training materials, resource
persons and trainers on the FFS approach for implementing FFS globally. In
support of these requests the FFS Foundation has developed the Global FFS Network and Resource Centre (FFSnet) in close collaboration with FAO, CTA and other partners.
With the global expansion, institutionalisation and scaling-up of the FFS approach, a
need has risen to establish a decentralised network and resource centre to
cater for strategies and mechanisms for institutionalisation and scaling-up,
quality control mechanisms, low cost implementation strategies and mechanisms,
a discussion forum, exchange of experiences, and quick access to resource and
training materials, trainers, experts and documentation.
Goal and objectives
The objective of FFSnet is to create a network capacity
of governmental and non-governmental organizations in the South to respond to
the needs of programmes and projects (particularly FFS master trainers and
facilitators) for knowledge, discussion and information on the FFS approach,
particularly on institutionalization and scaling-up strategies and mechanisms,
and quality control.
immediately the objective is:
- Support national and regional knowledge sharing,
networking and coordination among partners for a more effective
implementation of FFS interventions.
- Functional FFS network and resource
- Discussions and fora on key
developments of the FFS approach
- Improved exchange of FFS experiences
and knowledge sharing
- Improved access to FFS materials and
