SALSA community of practice
SALSA CoP is organised at two levels:
In each country where SALSA conducts its research, there is a regional or national CoP which brings together regional and national stakeholders. Typically, participants in regional CoPs are small farmers, small food businesses, NGOs, policy makers, researchers, advisors and other. Depending on local contexts, SALSA partners have initiated new collaborative networks or have aligned with existing communities. Regional CoPs focus on issues that are relevant for small farms and small food businesses at regional or national level.
SALSA international CoP mobilizes international stakeholders. These involve the project’s partners, members of SALSA expert stakeholder panel, experts invited from other relevant networks, active SALSA e-conference participants (see SALSA 1st e-conference and 2nd e-conference), SALSA Twitter followers, and other interested parties.
The international CoP brings together experiences and expertise from around the world, and helps to align SALSA research with relevant international debates and issues.
