Advocacy

Marketing: ADMAPE successfully lobbied local authorities on behalf of farmers for the setting up of 3 additional weekly markets during the main harvesting season. For 2 months producers were able to market both vegetables and grains such as rice and maize at a time when such outlets are usually restricted and favouring imported options.

Drought Relief: ADMAPE lobbied on behalf of local people both international NGOs and national authorities for support and relief for those most badly affected by the drought.

International Organisation: ADMAPE have been involved in the creation and promotion of the Fouta Developpement International (www.foutadev.net), a group focused on engaging expatriate Senegal River Valley peoples from the EU, the USA and other parts of Africa in the economic and environmental development of the Senegal River Valley region (the Fouta Torro).
