2 ADDA Vietnam Projects The IPM Project (1998 - 2005). The Organic project (2004-2012) The Community Dev Project (2006 – 2014) The Legal Aid project (2008-2014) More Trees (subcont. by DFE 2010 - 2013) Community Based Farmer Groups, Tanzania (2009 – 2015)

3 Approach 1.Establish a team of facilitators, incl. training (ToT) 2.Conduct season long training (FFS) 3.Establish Interest Groups among the FFS graduate (only interested people participate)

4 Approach The preferred approach is to create a team of locally based and known facilitators who speaks the local language and Kinh

5 Approach Then provide technical training to farmers through participatory training methodologies (Farmer Field Schools)

6 Approach The Farmer Field School training provides the farmers with technical knowledge which usually enable the farmers to increase their income significantly

7 Approach and it also clearly display the advantages of collaboration to the participants. Therefore the farmers like to form the “Farmer Interest Groups”

8 Basic Principles of FFS The farmers are participating in weekly meetings during a full cropping season. They learn important ecological principles by managing learning plots and experiments themselves. 30 farmers form an FFS that is facilitated by two trainers. The discussion between farmers is the pulling force in FFS

9 Basic Principles of FFS The FFS approach uses discovery based learning methods to improve the farmers' agro-ecological knowledge. Each FFS has one IPM plot managed by the participants, one experimental plot and one plot cultivated in the way normally used by farmers. The farmers will observe the biology through AESA, and make drawings of their findings. No books are used

17 Maize FFS Farmers who have participated in a maize FFS have improved the income from maize cultivation with 40 % on average. 17

18 Maize FFS 40% increase of net income for 15,000 trained farmers, 1,245 kg extra / 0,6 ha maize field). Net profit is 3,145,000 VND / farmer. In one year this is 2,625,000 USD Total costs of project is 2,168,000 USD over the 4 years. 18

19 Maize FFS Farmers who have participated in a FFS have improved their collaborative skills The FFS are very useful as a tool for sustainable group formation 19
