The agri-agencies Afdi, Fert and Trias, but also Burkinabe agencies CORADE and APME2A, met in Ouagadougou Saturday, March 12, 2016 to discuss the issue of training of peasant leaders. A meeting which allowed to share what had already been achieved and by each other, but especially to consider future collaborations on the subject.
We note that:
- whether some structures present have already built approaches and tools, others are still in the experimentation when others have no formal steps in the matter. This is for all formations, but also post-training follow, even for some coaching;
- if audiences are varied – producer organizations, entrepreneurs, artisans, politicians… – approaches themselves differ: when some are based on the course (past – present – future) of the individual, others rather leave from leadership of the PO, the group;
- discovering these different approaches to the training of rural leaders, these structures were able to discuss their vision of the “leader”, the conditions for the emergence, or the skills to develop and cultural dimension to consider on this topic.
