They were trained in the use of communication tools and especially to build five regional platforms whose objective is to facilitate the implementation and monitoring of User-Led-Process in the regions.
The analysis of the communications needs of regional Agricultural Innovation Facilitators from the Regional Farmer Organisations (AIFs of the RFOs) revealed four major communication functions:
- Feed the regional and national actors with relative information to federated themes (web articles, publications, studies, websites, news) discussed by the group
- Inform the progress of steps performed within the User-led process by the group
- Having a set of tools and a space for group works, prepares and performs the steps of User-Led Process.
- Having the possibility to re-use the approach, tools and IT structures in place for the group after the end of the project
- to define together what might be the future shape of the regional platform.
- Why and how this platform can help User-Led-Process players to work better together and display the results?
- The use of these tools was tried out by the participants of the workshop
- They used those new skill to build their regional platform as described in the previous step.
The "platform" of the users led process for the respective sub regional farmer organisations takes the form of a website including three parts (three menus):
- A section devoted to the presentation of the regional group and to display news
- A section gathering some progress on the steps of user-led process and offering the consultation of information or documents produced during these stages
- An intranet dedicated to collaborative work for the user-led process’ actors using for the preparation and the implementation stages of this process.
- Family n° 1: All those involved in collaborative work (intranet) and will produce information: regional AIF, AIF national and regional referral FO
- Family n°. 2: User-Led-Process players who do not have access to the collaborative workspace (WP2, WP1, project members involved PAEARD deans ULP, invited experts, comanagers)
- Family n° 3: PAEPARD's project members
- Family n° 4: PAEPARD's Community (Dgroups)
- Family n° 5: Everyone involved in the User-Led-Process (donors, regional organizations research, OP ...)
- Family n° 6: The global public
- Desk review
- National workshops
- Regional Workshop
- The concept note
- The Research project
Each country that organizes a workshop has an entry point and its own workspace. This space is used in the preparation of the workshop. The workshop and the results will be published in the "User-Led Process progress stage follow up"
A - The preparation phase of the workshop:
- The development of the list of participants and its validation
- The development of the workshop program and its validation
- The implementation of the workshop logistics (location, dates, recipients, trips ....)
B - The facilitation of the workshop with:
- Access to communication and animation tools available and to their user guide The development and validation of the presentation materials and animation
- A library of useful documents to prepare the presentation materials Sample letters of invitation, cover pages, logos
- The development and validation of synthesis,
- summaries and records of decisions
A - Identification of Reasearch centers involved
B - The establishment of the research team
C - Identification of donor
D - Project formulation
