Regionalisation and creation of regional hubs

In a move towards decentralisation, ASF has recently set up “regional hubs” : the establishement of these hubs aimed to strengthen the strategic dialogue between the different offices and ensure that the regional perspective could feed the strategy and the priorities at international level.

These hubs have also been created to strenghten the regional roots of ASF and work as closely as possible with local beneficiaries and partners. They allow ASF to deploy relevant and qualitative action, based on contextualised expertise and already existing networks.

Main functions of these hubs:

  • Mission development and management
  • Production of relevant and contextualised expertise
  • Advocacy at international level and animation of networks
  • Capacity building to country teams
