Memoria – First National Meeting Pilot Project
The FIRST NATIONAL MEETING OF THE SICTAF PILOT PROJECT was held in the city of La Paz, on September 28 and 29, 2006.
The meeting was attended by representatives of the six organizations participating in the PILOT PHASE of the SICTAF Network, agricultural promoters from two field sites linked to the experience (Entre Ríos-Tarija and Coroico / Caranavi-La Paz), and the team Project technician
1) Encourage member organizations to initiate a reflection on the institutionality of SICTAF.
2) Know the pilot member institutions and identify their role in the action research project.
3) Improve the usability of the Portal.
To meet the objectives of the meeting, exhibitions, computerized practical exercises, group work and plenary sessions were combined.
Two exhibitions were presented by the technical team:
– The action research project
– The work plan with local actors
The purpose of these exhibitions was to publicize the characteristics of the project and collect suggestions from the participants.
On the second day of the workshop the organizers provided six computers, which were available to the six participating organizations of the pilot. We worked with two practical exercises that allowed us to strengthen the skills in the use of the portal and clarify doubts about its use.
During the workshop several exercises and group work dynamics were introduced. Some of these exercises were aimed at achieving greater interaction among the participants; others sought to promote discussion and exchange of ideas.
sessions were held to publicize the work of groups, to encourage discussion and exchange of ideas among all participants and to reach consensus on proposals by the pilot’s participating organizations.
