Learning Route “Tools and Innovations to integrate Rural Youth and Marginalized Ethnic Community in Agriculture through Small Farmer Agricultural Cooperative Limited (SFACL)”

NACCFL and PROCASUR Corporation jointly organized a Learning Route (LR) “Tools and Innovations to integrate Rural Youth and Marginalized Ethnic Community in Agriculture through Small Farmer Agricultural Cooperative Limited (SFACL)” from 5 February to 9 February 2016 at SFACL Handikhola and Manohari. The cases studies were “Experience and Learning on integrated farming”, “Integrating marginalized ethnic groups into cooperative”, “Implementation of learned ideas during foreign employment for agriculture modernization”, and “Lift irrigation managed by cooperative members” of SFACLS in the Makwanpur Districts.

The LR participants concluded  that  the LR methodology can be one of the most effective tools  to promote networking, successful cases and in turn reduce poverty. Community development is indeed possible through bringing people together and ensuring accessibility to technical and financial aspects.  As there is already a network of farmers working together, NACCFL should start to identify success stories and innovators  and promote them.  Also, based on this network members can develop a Knowledge Management Plan to start capturing the vast knowledge already there
