FFS Networks and South-South cooperation

In 1995, the first African FFS training took place in Ghana, with participants from Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso, facilitated by Master Trainers from the Philippines. When a country starts to work first on FFS experienced FFS Master Trainers brought in from other countries are crucial to develop a local capacity. 

Sharing the experience of the programme and lessons learned through south-south cooperation is an effective manner to support countries facing similar problems and to ensure both quality and sustainability of emerging FFS programmes.

Many experienced FFS practitioners (master trainers, facilitators and project management staff) are part of informal or more formal networks at local or regional level. This is the basis to promote and sustain the FFS practices at different levels, including developing more formalized regional and global technical networks.
