IFPRI - NAIP - Experiences about National Training Programme - S B N Rao


Published on

National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), ICAR and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organized a two day workshop on ‘Impact of capacity building programs under NAIP’ on June 6-7, 2014 at AP Shinde Auditorium, NASC Complex, Pusa, New Delhi. The main purpose of the workshop was to present and discuss the findings of the impact evaluation study on capacity building programs under NAIP by IFPRI. The scientists from ICAR and agricultural universities were sent abroad to receive training in specialized research techniques. Post-training, scientists were expected to work on collaborative projects within the ICAR, which would further enrich their knowledge and skills, expand their research network and stimulate them’ to improve their productivity, creativity and quality of their research. The ICAR commissioned with IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute) to undertake an evaluation of these capacity building programs under NAIP in July 2012. The workshop shared the findings on the impact of capacity building programs under NAIP and evolve strategies for future capacity building programs

  5. 5. Learning Experiences from the Training
  6. 6. A.Training in the context of individual and institutional skill gaps The training is of 2 weeks duration, gave an exposure to different techniques like NIRS, biosensors, pesticide analysis/heavy metal analysis in food commodities, Image analysis using machine vision.
  7. 7. B. Capacity built, work culture and attitudinal changes 1. Helped in overcoming obstacles for achieving measurable and sustainable results. 2. Understanding the importance of workculture to bring about attitudinal changes among colleagues in sharing the resources in an amicable way for win-win situations.
  8. 8. C. Planning, selection, training duration, resource institution and resource person, training implementation, and reporting. Not applicable as it is National Training Programme, the selection of resource person/s is very good. The resource persons are knowledgeble
  9. 9. D. Post-training utilization, linkage and network developed and future plan A new laboratory is being set up wherein facilities for estimation of pesticide residues, feed microscopy analysis using image software analysis were set up. Our institute has been identified as one of the collaborating centers in the following platforms. 1. Fodder Platform: Lead center is IGFRI, Jhansi 2. Transgenic Rice Platform: DRR, Hyderabad.
