What is the GFRAS Annual Meeting?
The GFRAS Annual Meeting is the central instrument to foster exchange on rural advisory services (RAS) between stakeholders and across regions, and to discuss GFRAS strategic directions and functioning. The GFRAS Annual Meeting contributes to all three GFRAS functions, but mainly to functions 1 (providing a voice within global policy dialogues) and 3 (strengthening actors and fora in RAS).
The GFRAS secretariat, guided by an organising committee, organises the GFRAS Annual meeting in collaboration with GFRAS members. Logistical support is provided by the host of the GFRAS Annual Meeting. Past hosts of the meeting were RELASER (2010, Chile), AFAAS (2011, Kenya), and APIRAS (2012, the Philippines).
