    About ANSAF


    ANSAF is an acronym for Agricultural Non State Actors Forum. It was formed in 2006 by members from the private and civil society organizations working in the agricultural sector in Tanzania. The impetus for the formation of ANSAF was demand driven. The forum’s objectives are first; is to advocate for a pro-poor and conducive agriculture policy environment where Civil Society Organizations and the private sector effectively engage with and influence agriculture sector policies and practices. Secondly; to effectively analyze the existing agriculture policies and suggest alternative views/directions. The third main objective is to provide a platform for learning, sharing, networking and coalition building around best practices and key issues in the agriculture sector.

    A Tanzanian Society free of poverty where sound agricultural policies and best practices contribute to the transformation of the country’s economy.

    To work with ANSAF members and non-members to strengthen the coordination and collaboration of joint efforts in the agricultural sector in addressing crucial issues affecting marginal and smallholder farmers by influencing government policies through advocacy and lobbying.
