Titre Horticultural chain management for countries of Asia and the Pacific
Résumé In 2005 FAO embarked upon the design and development of training of trainer programmes to strengthen capacities in horticultural chain management. With funding from the Commonwealth Secretariat, a formal agreement was established with the University of Pretoria, South Africa, to develop a training package focused on practical approaches to assuring the safety and quality of horticultural produce and on the efficient organization of horticultural chains to improve the competitiveness of small and medium enterprises in East and Southern Africa. In 2008 a formal agreement was established with King Mongkut's University of Technology, Thailand to tailor the original training package (consisting of a theoretical manual and a practical manual) to the context of Asia and the Pacific region and to test the adapted training materials by means of a subregional training programme for the least developed countries of the region. This training package is structured to provide trainers in Asia and the Pacific region with sufficient technical background and reference materials to allow them to customize training in accordance with the needs of the target groups to be trained. It includes a number of practical exercises that are designed to reinforce and enhance an understanding of theoretical issues presented in the theoretical modules. It is hoped that the training package will stimulate improvements in horticultural chains across Asia and the Pacific region, leading to safer produce of higher quality, to reduced losses and to better economic returns for small and medium enterprises and small-scale producers.
