Niamey (Niger): Atelier d'échange de bonnes pratiques, 5-6 décembre 2012

In this section we invite you to discover fact sheets, newsletters, articles, publications, CD-ROMs, audiovisual files and e-learning courses.

The fact sheets developed by the Programme can have several different forms:

Information fact sheets: summary (often a double-sided page) highlighting the salient points of an experiment or a good practice. It should not be exhaustive, but should contain technical or other information.

Experience fact sheets: documentation of an experiment showing (i) the process used for its implementation and (ii) the lessons learned after the analysis of constraints and key success factors.

Good practice fact sheets: documentation of a validated and repeated practice, using the template (for documentation of good practices) as a checklist from the beginning of the experiment(s).

Methodological fact sheets: documentation of gender-sensitive participatory methodology used during an action, or a series of activities on the same topic. The control fact sheet is a checklist, whereas the methodological guide or training manual or learning module are much more detailed support materials, specifying the process step by step.

Concept notes: A written discussion of a concept, synthesizing the salient aspects of the concept, and may include definitions, approaches and potential applications.

Case studies: Detailed analysis of a practice or a situation which allows illustration of a concept, a hypothesis, a problem or a diagnosis.

The articles are those published by the Programme in other newspapers.

The publications are those of FAO, produced by the Programme or in partnership.
