The collaborative research assignments are based on the results that have been achieved in the national workshops realized in 2008-2009 in the collaborative research component. In these workshops the National Farmers’ Organisations (NFOs) have defined the research priorities in their country, based on their specific context and linked to their own strategies, and define the research support activities. The research activities and thematic priorities were organized as separate work packages in each country with separate implementing partners. Each country had budget specifically assigned to contract local research support, a budget to cover costs related to advocacy activities and a budget for the organisation of participatory research and training processes.
