The World Rural Forum Association (WRF) is a forum for meeting, analysing and observing rural development. It has established agreements with universities and other educational or research centres, with farmers' associations and with NGOs which have solid links with grass-roots organization. As a result of this work, we avail ourselves of reliable information which enables us to analyse the problems of farmers (men and women), stock-breeders and the inhabitants of rural areas throughout the world and draw up proposals for courses of action.
The WRF is a non-lucrative Association of an international nature, whose activities are carried out in a world context. It defines itself as a network which amply covers the five continents and is formed by people and public and private institutions, committed to the achievement of sustainable and equitable development, particularly in the field of rural development.
In the quest for achievement of rural development, the WRF also promotes projects for cooperation in various rural areas of the world.
