FTA has a set of operational priorities which structure its program of work. These priorities address key development demands and knowledge gaps concerning the implementation of the SDGs and the Paris Agreement on climate change. These operational priorities have each a 3-yr operational workplan 2019-2021, with a detailed list of activities and outputs, identifying clearly those funded by W1W2.
FTA mitigated the impact of the COVID-19 restrictions: field activities were generally conducted by local staff that could travel domestically, and some activities were significantly amended, in particular participation to international events for which engagement was mainly done virtually. Paradoxically, this led to an increase of engagement in some key areas, including participation to sectoral platforms, such as the International Rubber Study Group, the Global Landscapes Forum, or the Transformative Partnership Platform on Agroecology. Also, capacity development activities increased in 2020.
