ACTESA – Organization for East African farmers

African FarmCOMESA announced the creation of the Alliance for Commodity Trade in Eastern and Southern Africa (ACTESA), which should help farmers to address their problems during rough times.

During the second congress of the East African Farmers’ Federation (EAFF) in Arusha, Tanzania the creation of  ACTESA was hailed as the most significant development in regional agriculture in 2009.

The EAFF highlights that farmers in the region have long required a focused initiative that would comprehensively address their market development needs.
