1) Empowering small scale farmers and workers in Asia and the Pacific
NAPP’s mission is to serve as an organ of representation, coordination, exchange and collaboration for the empowerment of small scale farmers and farm workers from Asia and the pacific within the framework of Fairtrade certification.
Our mission is to facilitate the incorporation of more producers to be able to join the Fairtrade movement in Asia and the Pacific through an existing wide range of products and services. We also work to ensure that Asian and Pacific realities and conditions are taken into account while setting Fairtrade Standards, without compromising on the basic principles of Fairtrade.
2) The Three Pillars
The 3 pillars of our work:
- To serve as an organ of representation, coordination, exchange and collaboration for the empowerment of small scale farmers and farm workers from Asia and the Pacific within the framework of Fairtrade certification

- To ensure that Asian and Pacific realities and conditions are taken into account while setting Fairtrade Standards without compromising on the basic principles of Fairtrade
3) Theory of change
Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) are essential parts of creating external accountability for the Fairtrade system. There is an increasing impetus at NAPP to demonstrate Fairtrade’s impact.
Our approach to MEL has been driven by the global Fairtrade Theory of Change (shown below). We are systematically trying to understand how Fairtrade contributes to change as well as test underlying assumptions through our research and evaluations. We are trying to measure indicators to demonstrate impact so that we understand the change we bring in.
