In July the country forum of Madagascar was founded under the name of "Forum of agriculture consultants" FCA (Forum des conseillers agricoles). The forum wants to be a platform for all actors and stakeholders in Rural Advisory Services to exchange knowledge and experiences, to produce and promote innovative approaches and to advocate and foster partnerships and collaborations between the various organisation that are active in RAS. FCA works closely with AFAAS.
