Training of Trainers (ToT) on Capacity Building of Board of Directors of Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs).

About the programme

A three days Training of Trainers (TOT) workshop based on the open source publication “Capacity Building of Board of Directors of FPOs- A Trainers Guide" was conducted at Development Support Center (DSC), Ahmedabad from 6th -8th June 2019. The workshop was organized by ISEED in collaboration with Skill Green Global, Green Innovation Centre, Development support Centre and Aga Khan Rural Support Programme, India (AKRSP(I)) and was meant for FPO trainers from the western region of India. 

21 participants from eight organizations participated in the workshop. The objective of this workshop was to help trainers to conduct practical and effective training on the issues that the Board of Directors in an FPO need to understand and address in
order to govern and manage a successful business and company.

The idea of this workshop took birth during the national workshop on FPOs "Strengthening Farmer Collectives" which was organized by ISEED in collaboration with APMAS, NAFPO and Green Colleges on 7th March 2019 where this training guide was launched.
