Workshop on Organizational Review for the Farmers’ Organizations of Bangladesh
COAST is coordinating the “Needful actions and necessary preparations to move the program implementation of MTCP-II/IFAD project in Bangladesh. This project is known as MTCP 2, means Medium Term Cooperation Project. COAST is implementing project activities for strengthening capacities of Farmers’ Organization of Bangladesh in association with All Nepal Peasants’ Federation (ANPFa). The project is funded by International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
One of the key initial activities was a workshop to review the present status of the selected 9 FO of Bangladesh. That two days workshop was organized on 9th-10th March at the COAST auditorium in Dhaka, Bangladesh. 18 participants from 9 organizations participated in the program. Some essential topics which were needed to discuss to set the parameters of a strong FO and effective leader of an FO were discussed. The discussions helped all the FOs to identify their present status and to set up a one year target to make them a well organized and strong FO. An action plan regarding an immediate workshop on organizational review and taking strategies for each of the organization was taken.
