Internal Learning: Product Development

Today, we are having an internal learning workshop where all our consultants presented to further enhance our Products offered through our Business Development services. And Victor Van Der Linden and F&S General Manager led the workshop.

Our Role in the Linking and Learning Component of FSRE Fund

F&S Ethiopia has an important role in the Linking and Learning component of the FSRE Innovation Fund. The program was financed by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ethiopia.

And while ICCO Cooperation manages the fund, AgriProFocus Ethiopia, hosted in Ethiopia by F&S, runs the linking and learning part of the program. Hence, our consultants took the lead role in providing trainings and coaching services for the fund winners, by also organizing networking events.

Read this interesting story entitled “Beyond the usual Funding” written by our consultant Teklemariam Awoke and featured on the Food Security platform of the embassy.

Internal Learning: Market System Development

Jochem Schneemann, from Fair and Sustainable Consulting in the Netherlands, was here in Addis to further coach our consultants and

invited partners about the Market System Development (MSD) approach. The event is part of the continuous internal learning trend in F&S Ethiopia. In parallel, our partners from different NGOs were invited to be introduced and updated on the MSD approach.
