CTA/PAFO - Experience capitalisation and knowledge management workshop

CTA/PAFO - Experience capitalisation and knowledge management workshop

Event Overview

Based upon the collaboration in support of selected farmers' organisations-led businesses supported by CTA and partners, the workshop proposes to:

  • Review the results and lessons learned from the supported cases at national level after the support provided by CTA, PAFO and AgriCord members.
  • Identify further business cases which could be documented and benefit from support in the coming years.

The 3-day discussions and interactions among participants are expected to lead to:

  • specific skills among participants to start and complete a capitalisation process, and to draw lessons by doing it;
  • a set of cases described and analysed, and of lessons to share between the participating initiatives and with other interested organisations;
  • a set of documented experiences and lessons to be added to the website, and to kick-start discussions within the community of practice and the electronic platform;
  • specific plans to continue and complete the capitalisation process.
