Dear colleagues,

It took place at the University of the Gambia, Gambia, from 3rd June to 5th June 2014.

The main objectives of the training were:

  1. To analyse the main resources available for formation of people and application of ISFM strategies in Africa to produce training materials to be used in participant countries
  2. To have a clear idea on the funding opportunities for the Centres of Excellence for their topics of interest
  3. Basic knowledge on Project Cycle Management and funding opportunities

The participants have been the staff of the CAPACITY4FOOD Centres of Excellence since the aim here was to train them so that they can replicate the training received within their home universities, also inviting other universities of teh country, farmers, NGOs, associations and also policy makers depending on the topic.
