Ecological Organic Agriculture Leadership 课程 (EOALC) in 非洲

Capacity Development Processes for Ecological Organic Agriculture


2019年11月- 2022年3月



Implementing Target Countries:

at a Continental Level in 非洲


The knowledge hubs are coordinated by a leading local non-governmental organisation per region. Our partner for Southern 非洲 is the Sustainability Institute, in West 非洲 it is FENAB, 在北非是SEKEM, in East 非洲 it is Biovision 非洲n Trust and Central 非洲 is CIPCRE.

Farming provides a livelihood for more than two-thirds of people in 非洲, yet a quarter of the population is malnourished.

The problem is compounded by the fact that our planet’s limits in terms of the exploitation of its raw materials have already been exceeded in some places. The challenge is therefore to promote food systems that create food security, organic farming makes a valuable contribution to this. There is an urgent need for sustainable solutions to food security while respecting Earth's limits: soil erosion, 生物多样性下降, 和气候变化.

A series of discussions held among the 非洲n Ecological Organic Agriculture Initiative (EOA -I) stakeholders, 的BMZ, 她们的, and AG体育app下载-Organics International identified the need to further develop the capacities of key stakeholders in 非洲 in EOA. The 课程 will look at training and strengthening the organic leaders' ability to lead the Ecological Organic Agriculture movement, focusing on capacities for advocacy, 政策对话, 研究, 团队合作, 和网络.

Following this strong expression of interest, we are currently 规划 the EOALC in the frame of the knowledge hub project that started in 2019. 

The EOALC is implemented by AG体育app下载 - Organic International on behalf of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (她们) GmbH and funded by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 


The EOALC is further formulated to support the organic leaders who are striving for truly sustainable change in agriculture in their regions. The main focus is ‘outward-facing leadership’, striving for sustainable change in agriculture in participants’ regions and countries. EOA is used as a concept in order to emphasise the diverse multi-stakeholder cooperation needed, also across cultures and regions.


The EOALC project implemented two one-week bloc trainings including a webinar series. The five groups which represent the five regions in 非洲 developed transfer projects to adress a context-specific issue in their region. 

The project hosted a 培训 of Trainers (ToT) which did a deep-dive into developing, 规划, and facilitation of an EOALC in the working context of selected participants from the EOALC. The focus of the training was on the perspective of a trainer and organiser. 

After the EOALC and ToT, an outcome and impact evaluation was carried out. As a result of this intensive training a Trainers Manual has been developed to support the EOALC Master Trainers in delivering further trainings.
