Since the end of March, the regional initiative YenKasa Africa has organized a series of webinars on experience capitalization. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), with its OPenACP Programme -FO4ACP, co-facilitated the second webinar of this six-part series.
Through this series of webinars, YenKasa Africa, a communication initiative for family farming and rural development in Africa, is strengthening the capacities of its members to better share their knowledge and experiences. The webinars complement and do not replace the online course on “Experience capitalization for continuous learning” available on the FAO Digital Academy website. The online course is available in four languages: English, French, Spanish and Russian.
To find out how to access the content of the course on learning from experience, please watch this video.
The second of the six webinars, dedicated to the preparation of the experience capitalisation process, took place on 18 April 2023. The preparation phase consists of two steps: framing and planning. To illustrate this preparation phase, the FAO Coastal Fisheries Initiative explained how they implemented the capitalization process to improve coastal fisheries management in Cabo Verde, Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal.
They started by targeting their audience, determining what they wanted to capitalise on, why and how. One of the results is a series of three booklets aimed at empowering women in fisheries value chains through salt-drying, fish smoking, and the manufacture of dried and semi-preserved shrimp and shellfish.
