GFRAS has a ten-year strategic framework (2016-2025) with three ‘strategic fields’ covering advocacy, professionalisation of rural advisory services and knowledge exchange among members and the wider community of actors in rural advisory services. The implementation of activities is framed by a five-year operational plan covering the period 2016-2020.
As the first period of the operational plan for the existing framework is nearing completion, GFRAS commissioned an external assessment of progress towards achieving its objectives. The assessment is also expected to identify lessons that can inform the preparation of the next five-year operational plan (2021-2025). The report of this assessment, as well as the recommendations it proposes, can be found here:
