Producer Organisation

Good Practices in building innovative rural institutions,IFAD and FAO, 2012

This good practice publication suggests that effective and sustainable producer organizations and institutional arrangements with market actors and policy-makers are the result of three interdependent types of relationships that small producers develop:
-Bonding or intragroup relationships among small producers within organizations.
-Bridging or intergroup relations between small-producer organizations to create apex organizations.
-Linking or extra-group relations between small-producer organizations and market actors and policy-makers.
