The cases captured in this booklet show the steps taken in many of these projects and organisations to support and ensure the adoption of an experience capitalization approach. Working together with their colleagues, those who joined the CTA workshops have become active “champions”: organising their own training sessions, they shared information in different ways, and have shown how others can benefit from the capitalization process.
An Experience Capitalisation workshop took place in Ishaka during the third week of February 2018. Our main objective was to present the main concepts and ideas of a capitalization approach, present a general methodology, and start an experience capitalization process with the representatives of IGTF, NUCAFE and ESIPPS.
How does one analyze the cooking of Jollof rice? This West African dish sent emotions flying high in the first workshop on experience capitalization in Accra, Ghana.
A capitalization process started with representatives of some of the member organizations of the East Africa Farmers Federation. The first workshop was in November, 2016, the second in March 2017.
CTA launched a call for grant proposals in 2014 to accelerate the process of adoption of ICTs for agriculture within selected agricultural value chains and policy processes. Now it is interested in communicating the results.
The “Capitalization of Experiences for Greater Impact in Rural Development” project is being implemented by CTA, in collaboration with FAO and the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), and with financial support from IFAD.
