Abstract : The producer organizations (POs) considered are formal rural organizations whose members organized themselves with the objective of improving farm income through improved production, marketing, and local processing activities. POs deal with: policies on issues such as pricing and export and import of agricultural products; improvement of agricultural production practices; access to inputs and services, including agricultural credit; marketing of agricultural production; and local processing of agricultural production and its marketing. The willingness to build rural capacity through empowerment of producer organizations is often hampered by implementation problems: how to do it. Fieldbased practitioners and World Bank staff have expressed a strong need for practical guidance to help producers in the design, implementation, and evaluation of producer organization capacity-building projects and programs. To this end the World Bank and the International Federation of Agricultural Producers sponsored an International Workshop on Strengthening Producer Organizations as a contribution to rural capacity building. The objectives were: (1) to draw lessons from good practices on practical ways and mechanisms to strengthen the capacity of producer organizations; (2) to identify priority actions and pilot projects to be designed and implemented in collaborative arrangements between producer organizations, governments, and interested donors, including the World Bank; and (3) to select material and information for a Source Book.
