LIVES project joins hands to train university staff on value chains

The LIVES project recently joined hands with national and international partners to help reinforce university based capacities on agricultural value chain development and gender mainstreaming.

Berhanu Gebremedhin and Ephrem Tessema recently contributed to a workshop organized by the Netherlands NUFFIC program for participants from universities in Jimma, Hawassa, Ambo, Haramaya, Semara, Bahir Dar, Wolayita Sodo and Adama. The LIVES team shared practical experiences on value chain development and gender mainstreaming.

Universities in Ethiopia need technical support from international research and development organization to help integrate value chain development and mainstream gender into their curricula. For the LIVES project, they also have important roles as potential centers to promote and scale up research lessons.
