Workshop on the capitalisation of experiences in development projects

Workshop on the capitalisation of experiences in development projects

Event Overview

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.

Organisers

  • CTA

    The Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation (CTA) is a joint international institution of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and the European Union (EU). Its mission is to advance food security, resilience and inclusive economic growth in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific through innovations in sustainable agriculture. CTA operates under the framework of the Cotonou Agreement and is funded by the EU.

  • FAO

    Achieving food security for all is at the heart of FAO's efforts – to make sure people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. FAO's three main goals are: the eradication of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition; the elimination of poverty and the driving forward of economic and social progress for all; and, the sustainable management and utilization of natural resources, including land, water, air, climate and genetic resources for the benefit of present and future generations.

  • IFAD

    Headquartered in Rome, Italy, the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is a specialised agency of the United Nations dedicated to eradicating rural poverty in developing countries. It was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference. IFAD invests in rural people, empowering them to reduce poverty, increase food security, improve nutrition and strengthen resilience. Since 1978, we have provided US$18.5 billion in grants and low-interest loans to projects that have reached about 464 million people. IFAD is an international financial institution and a specialised United Nations agency based in Rome – the UN’s food and agriculture hub. In support of the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF), through its nominee AFRACA – The African Rural and Agriculture Credit Association, IFAD Co-Chairs the Finance Thematic Working Group and regularly participates in AGRF related sessions, workshops, programs related to the improvement of access to finance in Africa by smallholder farmers.

  • IICA

    As the specialised agency of the Inter-American System for agriculture, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) supports the efforts of the Member States to achieve agricultural development and rural well-being. The Institute provides its cooperation through daily, close and permanent collaboration with its 34 Member States, whose needs it addresses expeditiously in order to achieve increasingly inclusive, competitive and sustainable agriculture. Without a doubt, IICA’s most valuable asset is the close relationship it maintains with the beneficiaries of its work. Since our institution was founded, we have acquired a wealth of experience in areas such as technology and innovation for agriculture, agricultural health and food safety, agribusiness, agricultural trade, rural development, natural resource management and training.
