    Rural entrepreneurship has the potential to drive innovations that can reduce poverty, increase access to food and create employment. For this to happen, actors in agrifood value chains need to trust each other. However, local agrifood value chains are almost always characterised by protectionist behaviour resulting in very high marketing costs and a stalemate, instead of by a drive for positive change and development. This course is focused on breaking the deadlock these value chains are in. It hands you the tools to do that.

    Driving innovation in agrifood value chains

    Learn to facilitate chain-wide learning

    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.

    When implemented, action plans will build trust and reduce opportunistic behaviour in the selected value chains. As a result, marketing costs and prices will come down while margins increase. The overall performance of the value chain will improve, which will form the basis for private-sector driven innovations in agrifood value chains. During the course, you will get familiar with business planning tools to ensure that (new) business ventures are based on sound business principles, and practice your skills and new-learned tools on actual cases.

    Course objectives

    Upon completion of the course you 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.

    Target audience

    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.

    OVERVIEW

    This two-day workshop tackles the rewards and risks involved in executing procurements in USAID-funded assistance programs. Well-planned, well-executed procurement contributes to effective and compliant programming. Poor understanding of processes and procedures in this area raises the risk of funder audits and compliance reviews. If you want to learn more about how to develop and implement the right mix of procurement procedures, systems, and controls, this workshop is for you. Designed in a highly participatory style, the course provides you with the knowledge and tools you need to effectively manage all aspects of procurement that are typically required in project implementation.

    Disaster Managers have the challenge of focusing on their work and often neglecting the role of the media. Media practitioners often report on disasters with very little or background or experience in the field. This often leads to distorted reporting. This training focuses mainly on how to be proactive and manage DRR communications, as well as relations with the media. It also enables media practitioners to understand disasters better and how to report on them by working with experts in the field.

    About the Course

    This course will cover the importance of media relations in emergencies as well as the coordination and capacity building mechanisms in media relations (e.g. working committees, media trainings, social media). It will also give insight to participants on how best to incorporate the ubiquitous presence of media to the advantage of the disaster team; how to give an effective interview; how and where to establish a media center; and the importance of sensing what will make the strongest visual or textual impact.

    Expected Outcomes

    The aim of the course is to bridge the gap between disaster managers and media officials before, during and after disasters. It also aims at identifying key issues in establishing good coordination and efficient flow of information from government and other stakeholders sources for media during emergencies.

    Target Audience

    This training is meant for practitioners, decision and policy makers working in emergency and disaster management, volunteers and staff working with organizations tasked with communications and external relations. This includes individuals working with government institutions, NGOs the UN, intergovernmental bodies and the private sector. Students and young professionals who would like to increase their knowledge in the field are also welcome.

    For more detailed information please consult the Course Outline attached to this offer.

    The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR) is a 15-year, voluntary, non-binding instrument which recognizes that the State has the primary role to reduce disaster risk but that the responsibility should be shared with other stakeholders including local governments, the private sector, international ogranisations and others. SFDRR aims at “the substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries”.

    ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

    The Gravitazz Sendai Workshops is a string of workshops organised by Gravitazz Institute for Disaster Reduction and Emergency Management. The workshops target Sub-Saharan African countries and aim at supporting country stakeholders in integrating the SFDRR into their national policies and programmes.

    The workshop will allow participants to:

    • Receive a practical understanding of the SFDRR and related instruments (e.g. 2016 Mauritius Programme of Action, African Union Strategy for DRR);

    • Reflect on national policies, framework and strategies, and how they can be effectively aligned to the SFDRR in order to achieve the goals and targets set for 2030;

    • Learn about the importance of data and monitoring of the Sendai targets through relevant existing indicators; *Highlight the links between the SFDRR and other global instruments and frameworks related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to Climate Change Adaptation*

    Recognizing the importance of the 2017 Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction, this edition of the Workshop will focus on the Lessons Learned from this high-level event.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND

    The Sendai Workshops are aimed at disaster management practitioners, government officials and policy makers from Disaster Management Agencies as well as partners of Government, including UN agencies and NGOs with a direct interest in DRR. They can also be organised for relevant line ministries and focus on the links between the SFDRR and a certain thematic e.g. health, environment.
