As part of endeavours towards strengthening the capacity of Nigerian farmers to engage in policymaking processes, the Nigeria Strategy Support Program of the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI-NSSP) organized a Group Dynamics training for farmers in Delta State from 1- 2 November 2018.
More specifically, the objective of the training, which was attended by 29 participants (20 male, 9 female) was to train group leaders on group dynamics thereby strengthening their capacity to strengthen their local formal and informal groups’ ability to manage their assets, make strategic group decisions and create a balanced level of participation.
The training covered topics such as Group Vision and Mission, Working as a Team, Leadership, Communication, Conflict Management and Resolution, Group Decision-making, Group Registration, mobilizing Resources, Planning and Implementation and Organizing records.
Participants expressed commitment to stepping down the knowledge and skills gained from the training in their various groups.
This training is part of the activities of the Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project. The project is jointly implemented by IFPRI’s Nigeria Strategy Support Program (IFPRI-NSSP) and Michigan State University with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Nigeria)
