I am piloting a curriculum / tool in Sierra Leone meant to:
a) strengthen farmer groups and build their agribusiness capacity, and
b) build the capacity of agricultural extension agents in modernised advisory services
This pilot will be with 25 farmer groups and 15 extension staff. The majority of the farmer groups are women's groups.
I was wondering if anyone recommends a M&E strategy / tool / approach to monitor this tool / curriculum. I am looking for something that is rigorous, providing data that can then be communicated for further scale. Also a strategy that is flexible enough to capture intangible skills gained, such as confidence, leadership etc. Ideally an approach that could point you in a direction for what would need to be reiterated for greater impact.
This pilot is working in a greater context of the goal towards food security.
If you could recommend any strategies, why you recommend them and provide links or resources that would be much appreciated.
All the best and thank you for your help!,
