The Eastern and Southern African Farmers’ Forum (ESAFF) Board decided that it was necessary to compile a governance manual that provides ESAFF leadership with guidelines on governing the regional network of farmer organisations. The manual was developed with a clear motive to enhance good governance in ESAFF and ensure that the ESAFF vision, values and mission are continuously translated into its strategic plans and core activities, implemented by employees and supported by relevant stakeholders. This way, the Board would ensure that the regional farmer network generates added value for its membership. Enhancing good governance is also intended to ensure the effective functioning of the governance structures and their secretariats through compliance with internal policies and standards and laws of the countries in which the network operates, especially those of the country in which it is registered: Tanzania.
