The Eastern Africa Farmers Federation (EAFF) is a corporate members-based regional farmers’ organization founded in 2001. It is registered in Kenya under the Societies Act, with country chapters in each of its member countries. EAFF’s establishment was triggered by the development imperatives of the late 1990s and early 2000, especially the need to strengthen mechanisms for regional collective action. Specifically, the revival of the East African Community (EAC)  and the focus on strengthening the Regional Economic Communities by the Africa Union provided an opportunity for farmer organizations to engage at the regional level. Accordingly, EAFF’s formation was championed by national farmers’ organizations from Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and DR Congo.

The Eastern African Farmers Federation was formed in 2001 and its chapter registered in member counties.
