Agriculture Development Agents Facilitator's Manual
This facilitators manual is developed for the use of the Master Trainers (MT) when training agricultural development agents (DA’s) on the importance of the contribution of the agricultural sector to improved nutritional outcomes to build healthy and strong Ethiopian families.
Purpose of this manual
- To equip health and agriculture workers at communities level with the knowledge, attitude and communication skills.
- Create awareness on nutrition component of agriculture-nutrition interventions that provides appropriate services, including well-tailored and comprehensive nutrition education, to address specific, local malnutrition issues.
- Describe the type of interventions that promote nutrition-sensitive agriculture and how to integrate them into their daily activities.
- Use the tools to counsel farmers on nutrition-sensitive agricultural interventions.
The Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) project is funded through the Bureau for Food Security of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to support the Presidential Feed the Future Initiative, which strives to increase agricultural productivity and the incomes of both men and women in rural areas who rely on agriculture for their livelihoods. This report is a reference document that aims to provide an overview of the current status of Ethiopia’s agriculture as well as the country’s status in relation to the prevalence of poverty, nutrition and gender related issues. The report summarizes Ethiopia’s agricultural, gender, and nutrition policy, and USAID’s strategic goals and objectives for the country in these areas.
In March and April 2014 , the Strengthening Partnerships, Results, and Innovations in Nutrition Globally (SPRING) project conducted a rapid, participatory process review to document experience and learning from activities that are utilizing a common strategy to promote nutrition through Feed the Future agriculture investments in Ethiopia. This strategy involves training agriculture development agents (DAs) to deliver nutrition social and behavior change (SBC) messages and interventions to support the integration of nutrition and agriculture. This review examined the experience of three Feed the Future activities: Empowering New Generations to Improve Nutrition and Economic Opportunities (ENGINE), Agricultural Growth Program – Agribusiness and Market Development Project (AGP-AMDe), and Pastoralist Resiliency Improvement and Market Expansion (PRIME). Capturing the process in Ethiopia contributes to the Feed the Future learning agenda and may also help refine agriculture-nutrition approaches in current and future activities around the world.
This is the final draft report of the the Policy and Investment Framework (PIF) for Ethiopia's agricultural sector. The PIF provides a strategic framework for the prioritisation and planning of investments that will drive Ethiopia’s agricultural growth and development. It is a 10-year road map for development that identifies priority areas for investment and estimates the financing needs to be provided by Government and its evelopment partners. It is anchored to, and aligned with, the national vision of becoming a middle income country by 2020 together with a number of key policy and strategic statements.
A Power Point Presentation on a paper adressing motivations and inefficiencies in investment in extension as well as lessons for reform of extension.
This document describes the strategic direction, objectives, major targets and implementation strategies of agricultural and rural development in Ethiopia. The main objective of the GTP is to achieve accelerated and sustained growth that contributes to poverty eradication and achievement of MDGs.
