Duration: 01/Jul/2016 - 31/Dec/2016
Project contact: Dr Kiran K Sharma (K.SHARMA@CGIAR.ORG)
The project entails production and dissemination of training manual and communication material for training of Board of Directors (BoD) members of Farmer Producers Organizations (FPOs). The manual will be translated into Telugu and each BoD member can have a copy of the published manual with him/her. The training manual is useful for training of BoD members of FPOs on various aspects of governance. These include institutional structure, systems, centrality, Board constitution, Board and General Body meetings, linkages, audits, business plan, accounting & finance, value addition, quality control, marketing etc. Along with manual, trainers background notes also will be developed. This will ensure the standards set for uniform quality in delivery of training programmes. The training material will be mostly visual in nature and serve as an effective self-learning tool for participants. As ICRISAT is directly implementing promotion of FPOs, the trainings will be followed-up by necessary monitoring, handholding of BoD members from time to time.
