UN MONDE D'AVANTAGES

L’agriculture joue un rôle crucial dans le développement économique et social de la plupart des pays du monde, et pourtant, on ne lui accorde pas l’attention qu’elle mérite, que ce soit au niveau national ou international.Voilà ce qui semble expliquer la grave crise alimentaire que connait le monde entier aujourd'hui.
En tant qu’organisme national, notre objectif premier consiste à exprimer les préoccupations des agriculteurs, horticulteurs, éleveurs et autres professionnels à défendre leurs intérêts au niveau national et international à la fois. Face à la mondialisation croissante, il est capital d’être bien organisé et de faire partie d’un réseau international. Grâce à la Cameroonian Association of Agricultural Journalists (CAAJ), vous serez en mesure de collaborer avec des confrères et consoeurs qui font partie des plus grands réseaux du monde d’agriculteurs, d’horticulteurs, d’éleveur dans l’accomplissement de cette mission. 
Nous sommes donc heureux d’inviter tout professionnel soit à devenir membre s'il répond aux critères indiqués dans nos statuts,soit de nous avoir comme partenaire privilégié dans ses activités.Ce qui lui permettra d’exprimer ses propres préoccupations locales et aussi nationales, tout en élaborant des positions communes sur des questions mondiales. 
À titre de membre ou de partenaire de la CAAJ, vous pourrez créer des synergies avec d’autres organisations nationales d’agriculteurs qui font déjà partie du réseau de la CAAJ ; vous aurez en outre accès aux services des partenaires internationaux de la CAAJ et, plus particulièrement, à une tribune mondiale où vous pourrez sensibiliser les intéressés aux préoccupations des agriculteurs, horticulteurs? éleveurs et autres professionnels.
De plus, au nom des agriculteurs du monde, vous contribuerez à la formulation de positions relatives aux politiques internationales, et à la présentation de ces positions devant le système onusien, à l’OMC et à d’autres organismes internationaux appropriés, par la voie des délégations de la FIPA. 
Avec la mondialisation, les décisions se prennent de plus en plus au niveau international. Les agriculteurs doivent donc collaborer pour se faire entendre à ce niveau, et pour influer sur la situation internationale.

NOUS REJOINDRE

Freelance writers and/or photographers will be required to provide specific verification of their editorial copy and/or photos for said media.

Such membership must be approved by a majority vote of the active membership, following investigation and recommendation by a Membership Committee. Honorary membership shall have all rights and privileges of active membership.
