Abstract
NAFU SA therefore represents the aspirations of those who had been disadvantaged, neglected and marginalised.1 As far as the politics of agricultural reform is concerned, NAFU SA takes as its responsibility to ensure that the agricultural sector
is equally accessible to all farmers, irrespective of size, colour, geo-physical location or type of land tenure under which any agricultural activity takes place. NAFU SA's ideological approach to land and agrarian reforms compliments in varied ways the three inter-related principles of the Green Paper on Land Reform, namely: de-racialising the rural economy, democratic and equitable land allocation and use, and a sustained production discipline for food security. These principles are embedded within NADU SA's broad approach and aims as enunciated below: to lobby for policy reforms aimed at leveling the field in all agricultural matters with particular reference to land acquisition, agricultural funding, market access and public policy;? to lobby for the provision of appropriate services e.g. extension, marketing and credit to members;? to identify, quantify and address the needs of members;? to facilitate the provision of training;? to empower women and young people to participate fully in farming activities.
