Capacity Building Initiatives


Many organisations have been working on capacity building- even then the need is still not being fulfilled as the expectations have changed and the ecosystem has evolved with diverse needs, starting from FPO operations, management, governance, compliances to human resource skilling, membership enhancement and tech adoption. In this respect, NAFPO has curated a training module for capacity building of FPOs at different stages of promotion and maturity. NAFPO has trained more than 1000 women farmers associated with 150+ FPOs in leadership and staff positions.
