Deadline: 18 October 2016
This course on rural entrepreneurship centres around the Chain Wide Learning methodology (CWL), that consists of three components:
- a multi-stakeholder workshop in which producers in the value chain gather and share their issues and opportunities at functional chain levels;
- a strategic planning process in which the outputs of the workshop are used as inputs;
- a set of action plans to reduce transaction costs and/or exploit opportunities in the selected agrifood value chains.
Upon completion of the course applicant will:
- have become sensitive to imbalances within agrifood value chains and how these issues can be addressed;
- have strengthened your capacity to promote rural wealth creation;
- have strengthened your competence in the area of market access of microl entrepreneurs;
- have the ability to identify pro-poor, smallholder inclusive and/or gender-friendly agribusiness development opportunities;
- be able to apply the tools that support private sector driven innovations in agrifood value chains.
The course is intended for midcareer professionals of government departments, NGOs and civil society organisations, businesses, development agencies, universities and colleges for higher education, and individual consultants working in the domain of private sector and/or market driven development.
