WFP Purchase for Progress Annual Consultation

 P4P Annual Consultation 2011 Rome, Italy. WFP/P4P

Reflections and Looking Forward
These sessions will provide an opportunity to take stock of progress to date and share some preliminary details of emerging evidence.  The focus areas will be Building Capacity of Farmers’ Organizations and Gender.
P4P as a Catalyst – Supporting Agricultural Transformation:
This session will present specific examples of how P4P is being effectively used to support broader agricultural transformation agendas.  This will be presented from the perspectives of host governments and development partners, particularly focusing on the role of P4P as an integral part of a comprehensive approach.
Moving Forward Together – Partners’ Perspectives:
Working with over 200 partners in 20 countries, the active engagement of a broad range of stakeholders has been crucial to the development of P4P over the past four years.    Moving from plenary to break-out groups, this session will allow our partners to voice their perspectives, with time for discussion among group participants.  We hope to learn about what has worked well and what specific challenges have been faced as partnerships with P4P have evolved.
Moving Forward – Learning from WFP in Non-Pilot Countries:
During this session, experiences from 3 non-pilot countries will be shared, focusing on how WFP country offices have leveraged P4P to undertake pro smallholder farmer local purchases.
