Small Holder incl. Grow Program (March 24 to 26, 2016)
Agricultural change is a direct contribution to the fight against extreme poverty provided that the main basis of the developing calendar is the smallholder approach. The Myanmar agricultural fabric is predominantly smallholder with an avarage farmer base of about 6 acre. These smallholders make up 55 to 60 per cent of the total agricultural populous.
That is why the integrative approach to economic development is the most important political dilemma to pursue. The LIFT funded LIFT funded LIFT workshops "Lessons and good practice from LIFT in the Delta ", which took place in Yangon on 3 October 2014, presented the teachings of INGOs and NGOs working with smallholders in Delta and most of their experiments and innovation are valuable for them to learn and share experience with them.
A number of demonstrations involve (i) hire purchase system, (ii) inventory credit system, (iii) contractual cultivation system, (iv) farmers' seeds system, etc. With a view to integrated economic development and the fight against extreme poverty, LIFT has highlighted the following issues in working with smallholders. What are the advantages of contractual cultivation for companies and smallholders?
iii ) What are the hazards associated with rice and the stock ticketing system? Further possible chances for smallholders are the introduction of a participative warranty system (PGS) for the manufacture and commercialisation of biological produce or seed certification. One way or another, multinational aid organisations, INGOs, NGOs, CSOs, agricultural enterprises (ABCs) or governments have taken steps to transform the agricultural sector to support the economic expansion of smallholders.
The Working Group on Nutritional Safety (FSWG) serves as a forum for providing educational experience, exchanging views and ideas and engaging with each of the participants to create the right integrative models of sustainable economic and social change that could be applied at each of the sites. In order to learn from INGOs and aid organisations' good practice, experience and teachings, the FSWG is planning a program of education for its members for the next 24-26 March 2016 at the Yangon offices.
Courses will be developed through discussions with INGO resources people who could be asked to share their experience and challenge in the pursuit of small farmers, including models for economic grow. For the time being, the models for future economic development will be dealt with in the context of the exercise programme: i) Mietkauf (Agriculteur - Services financiers gérés), ii) Système de crédit d'inventaire, iii) Production de semences d'agriculteurs par PGS et iv) Agriculture biologique par PGS.
During the course, preparation and follow-up tests are conducted and group discussions are encouraged in order to ensure a productive study proces.
