The 7th Annual Meeting of the Global Forum for Rural Advisory Services (GFRAS) will take place from 3 - 6 October 2016 in Cameroon, with side events on 3 and 7 October. The topic is the Role of Rural Advisory Services (RAS) for Inclusive Agripreneurship. It will be preceded by the Annual Meeting of the West and Central African Network for Rural Advisory Services (in French: le Réseau des Services de Conseil Agricole et Rural d’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre, RESCAR-AOC), a GFRAS-GIZ workshop on the Role of RAS in Gender Mainstreaming in Value Chains, and accompanied by other relevant learning events. The meeting is organised by GFRAS in partnership with RESCAR-AOC, the African Forum of Agricultural Advisory Services (AFAAS), and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Cameroon (MINADER). The 7th GFRAS Annual Meeting will be a participatory and interactive learning event, allowing participants from all around the world to exchange and share experiences on the topic.

In order to make the event as successful as possible, GFRAS and its hosts AFAAS, RESCAR-AOC, and MINADER are looking for additional funding. Funding opens donors a unique access to actual or future target audiences of own products or projects, provides opportunities to raise awareness and advocate for own efforts and projects in the domain of rural development and/or extension, and allows for a deepened exchange and discussion of own programmes. The 7th GFRAS Annual Meeting offers 4 different types of funding packages.
