As a network, SAFIN is designed to be partner-led in all its activities, and to have a flexible agenda that responds to emerging priorities and opportunities. Partners engage with each other based on the following principles:
Active listening and respect
Proactive sharing of knowledge and information
Leveraging and adding value to existing initiatives
Commitment to making a tangible difference towards the SAFIN vision.
Partners are led by a Steering Committee that represents the diversity of actors involved in the network and the broader ecosystem. The Committee provides overall direction, monitors progress, and advises and supports the Secretariat on resource mobilization.
A Secretariat housed at IFAD plays a convening, facilitating, and championing role for the network and for the Steering Committee.
