Project Results

Four outputs:

1. Delivery of a detailed proposal for the capacity development programme (CDP), which will include a content overview based on: (i) FAO’s theory of change for rural poverty reduction; (ii) documented global best practices in the areas of poverty reduction, food and nutrition security, and social protection; (iii) available sectoral training and teaching materials, including statistics for poverty and food security measurement; and (iv) the IPC-IG’s expertise on rural poverty, institutional demand, food and nutrition security, social protection, and M&E of social programmes. In addition, the proposal will detail the intended approach to implement the CDP in Morocco and Panama, based on a combination of e-learning initiatives using the Virtual Campus of the platform and face-to-face courses. 

2. Development of capacity development materials, including training modules/sessions, group and individual exercises, planning sheets, and description and implementation guidelines for different activities using country-level experience and priorities to define the content (in partnership with local institutions or consultants from Panama and Morocco)

3. Implementation of the CDP in Morocco and Panama, for 20-25 participants

4. Delivery of an assessment report describing the main lessons of CDP-related experiences in the two countries and suggestions for future implementation
