A four-day workshop is set to take place in Goa, India, targeting the representatives of different organisations in India and Southeast Asia, all of them involved in development initiatives covering a wide range of themes. The workshop is part of a project aiming to support the development of participants’ skills to start and complete a capitalisation process. This will involve accompanying them in the process of describing and analysing the steps followed by the different projects, and the results, outcomes and impact seen in each case, identifying learning moments and specific lessons to share with others. This will be accomplished through two workshops, with online support in between.
The workshop will introduce participants to the IMARK learning module on experience capitalisation and discuss the best approach to encourage its use. Participants will also be introduced to the main concepts underlying the experience capitalisation approach. Thereafter, they will discuss a general methodology and the steps to follow to ensure its completion. As participants draw specific lessons regarding the process, they will also plan for future activities with the group and with other participants.
Jorge Chávez-Tafur, CTA's Programme Coordinator for Knowledge Management will co-facilitate the workshop.
This workshop is part of the three-year project “Capitalisation of Experiences for Greater Impact in Rural Development”, implemented in different parts of the world by CTA, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United nations (FAO) and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), with financial support from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). In March 2017, similar workshops have taken place as part of this project, namely in Ghana and in Tanzania.
