Policies affect rural development and frame operations, reforms, and incentives on large scale. Still, RAS is considered in few policies. Several RAS fora have started to influence and develop RAS policies. Exchange and learning on evidence-based RAS policies and actions to influence them is needed to accelerate these processes.

Producer organisations are crucial both on the demand and the supply side of RAS. On the demand side, they identify and synthesise needs, demands, and solutions for farmers. They contribute to monitoring and evaluation of RAS, and participate in policy formulation. On the supply side, producer organisations provide and co-finance RAS activities.
