    Getting organized puts smallholders in charge. Through farmers groups, cooperatives and networks, forest and farm producers can help each other not only through marketing advantages and access to finance, but also through the exchange of knowledge and experiences, increased bargaining power, and a stronger voice in national decision-making. The Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) works at national level to strengthen producer organizations for smallholders, women, communities and indigenous peoples i n order to improve business, livelihoods and policy engagement. At regional and global level, the FFF works to help forest and farm producer organizations play a more strategic role by linking local voices and learning to global processes.

    Climate financing programmes such as REDD+, the Green Climate Fund and other efforts aim to provide global climate benefits while operating at local landscape levels. Failure to find the best way to engage and channel resources to local stakeholders and align their interests with forest conservation will significantly compromise the chances of achieving the carbon sequestration and mitigation targets, and could further marginalize poor and vulnerable people. It is here that forest and farm produ cer organisations play a pivotal role Local communities and smallholders have shown an enormous potential to preserve forest landscapes and generate economic and social development benefits. But they require critical enabling conditions to be in place which include not only secure commercial forest tenure, but also local organization with technical and business capacity to restore and sustainable and profitable use forest landscapes. For this reason, as REDD+ and other programmes are moving from planning to implementation, the role and participation of forest and farm producer organisations ought to be given much more prominence both in adapting to and mitigating climate change. By building inclusive partnerships, programs like REDD+ could channel the enabling investments that will secure tenure and build the organizational capacity to make resilient use of it across a range of sectors.

    Climate mitigation programmes and finance mechanisms like Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) must engage millions of forest farmers if they are to halt deforestation and restore forest landscapes. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been committed to the design of REDD+ strategies, monitoring, reporting and verification systems. But there is still a huge gap in channelling funds to rural actors to lead the response to climate change – in part because nobody is supporting the organisations that have been set up by those actors to make such responses possible. The Forest and Farm Facility (FFF) is working to link forest and farm producer organizations with governments, REDD+ and other climate change programmes to make landscape restoration and an end to deforestation a reality.
