2. Building the capacity for policy analysis and policy dialogue in southern Africa, and supporting demand-driven policy research and analysis.
FANPRAN's operations are informed by major regional policy frameworks and processes in Southern Africa.

FANRPAN is currently operating in 13 SADC countries (Angola, Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe) and operates through an inter-sectoral network platform in each country designated as a Country Node. The node comprises of the following stakeholders:
1. Government ministries responsible for FANR;
2. Policy research institutions such as relevant university departments;
3. Private sector national umbrella organizations which deal with FANR;
4. National farmers' organizations; and
5. Civil Society organizations. [according to site editor's information; editors ilissAfrica]
