Recently Danida Fellowship Centre facilitated a three-week international course in Sustainable Agriculture for NGO- leaders and cooperation partners of Danida- supported projects around the world. Participants from 11 nationalities were assembled and from ADDA´s cooperation organisations Mr. Ouern Ratana from CIDO (Community Based Integrated Development Organisation) Cambodia and Mr.John Wihallah from NADO (Njombe Agricultural Development Organisation) Tanzania were participating.
Both directors from ADDA´s cooperation organisations experienced great outcome of the course, which was about issues such as organic farming methods, international eco-certification and building up markets for small scale farmers. At the same time the two directors experienced a great interest from other participants towards the experience they have from ADDA´s Farmer Field Schools and Self Help Groups. See an interview with Mr. Ratana and Mr. Wihallah where they are discussing the course content here.
