Cooperation with Training Centres in Mali

Background              

Since 2016, the SLE has advised Malian education and training centres for agricultural and horticultural professions in the rice, mango and potato value chains. The focus is on innovations developed by the Green Innovation Centre. The client is the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the associated Mali Green Innovation Centre, which is linked to the PASSIP irrigation programme: http://www.passip.org/.

From a technical point of view, we are committed to agro-ecological principles; from a methodological point of view, we pursue a practice-oriented, innovative and inclusive didactic approach; we are driven by the vision of a sustainable social-ecological transformation.

Phase 1 (01.09.2016 – 30.07.2019): duration 3 years

Together with five training centres (CFC Katibougou de l'IPR IFRA - Université à Koulikoro, CFAP Kayes, CEFE Niono, CFASPAM Mopti, CCFAP de Sikasso/Zamblara), we developed training modules for agricultural professionals in the five regions of Kayes, Koulikoro, Sikasso, Ségou and Mopti on various topics such as small-scale irrigation, organic fertilisation and pest control. Our axes of intervention were (1) capacity development, (2) development of professional training and the topic of (3) quality management.

Results: As a result, the following practice-oriented field-tested training products (posters, modules, worksheets, picture boxes) are available:

  • Système Riziculture Intégré en rotation avec le maraichage (SRI + rotation des cultures). Manuel pour formateur.rice.s.
  • Système d’irrigation Alternative à la calebasse. Manuel pour formateur.rice.s.
  • Méthodes de lutte contre la mouche de fruits. Cas de la mangue à travers les vergers‐écoles producteurs au Mali. Manuel pour formateur.rice.s.
  • Manuel de formation sur le système d’irrigation goutte à goutte. Manuel pour formateur.rice.s.
  • Bonnes pratiques en maraîchage et en production de la pomme de terre. Manuel pour formateur.rice.s.
Phase 2 (ongoing, 01.08.2019 - 31-07.2022): duration 3 years

Based on experiences collected from phase 1, we have expanded the circle of our partners from five to twelve: four state training centres (Centres d'Apprentissage Agricole - CAA), six private centres (CFASPAM, CEFE, CCFAP, CFAP, CPM, CIFAN) and two universities, the CFC from the Université IPR-IFRA in Katibougou and the FAMA (Faculté d'Agronomie et de Médecine Animale) from the Université de Ségou.

In order to consolidate the impacts of phase 1, numerous aspects have been added in the field of management and organisational consulting, and we provide advisory support in the three areas: renewable energies, agroecology and mechanisation. In terms of methodology, we were able to develop new formats together with our partners, including explanatory videos, hybrid training concepts and the valorisation of teaching plots for an application-oriented and, if necessary, experimentally oriented training exercises. Another new element in the current phase is the South-South exchange of our partners with partners from Senegal.

Our axes of intervention are:

  1. Consolidation of the successes of the first phase
  2. Institutionalisation of innovation in the curricula of the new education and training centres
  3. Development and consolidation of networks of trainers and experts in agricultural innovation networking
  4. Development and conception of a platform for networking the partner institutions.
