Capacity Development is a cross cutting pillar that touches all of FCI’s stakeholders – ranging from staff to external partners like government, the private sector and smallholder farmers. Capacity Development is implemented primarily through partnerships with universities, research institutions and government targeting three levels of clientele:
Level 1: Smallholders including farmers and agro-pastoralists
Level 2: Implementing partners such as the Ministry of Agriculture
Level 3: Business Development Service providers such as transporters and buyers
What differentiates FCI on the capacity development frontier is our unique approach aimed at embedding trade facilitation during all training sessions.
