|Participants at the Nairobi partner inception workshop|
Through these activities, and depending on the response to the two additional callsplanned, PAEPARD expects to support the formation of about 30 new partnerships in year 2 for the slow and fast tracks together.
The PI-workshop of Nairobi gave the partners of new partnerships an opportunity to meet face-to-face (often for the first time). The participation consortia (partnerships) who participated in PI of Nairobi were the partners of Ghana - Improving food security and income for smallholder farmers through improved post harvest technology;Uganda -Enhancing capacity and developing networks between North-South Universities in Research Methods training at PhD level.
These two partnerships
- developed a shared and in-depth understanding of each other’s perspective of and interest in the common theme,
- clarified what each of them expects from the others and from the partnership as a whole (in terms of, e.g., contributions in kind and cash, types of benefits and their distribution between partners),
- agreed on the broad development actions needed to address the theme, on the roles and responsibilities of each partner and on the principles to be respected by the different partners to ensure continued focus on the demands of non-research stakeholders and balance in governance.
