The Asian Productivity Organization (APO) in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) will implement the above-cited course from December 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015 (4 months).
The objectives are: 1) to enable participants to understand the key concepts, as well as basic principles, tools, and techniques for promoting and adopting Good Agricultural Practices (GAP); 2) to provide opportunities for SME farm production units to understand and adopt GAP in their production processes independently; 3) to provide farm extension officers with practical tools and training templates for their promotion and adoption of BAP by small and rural farmers; and 4) to promote direct linkages between small and rural farmers and the market as adoption of GAP increases farm productivity and assures safe, sustainable production.
This structured self-learning course will be implemented through the APO’s dedicated e-learning website: http://www.apo-elearning.org/moodle19/. The participants can register on this website and create their own accounts. Registration starts at 9:00 am on December 1, 2014, ongoing until the end of the course.
As the National Productivity Organization, the Development Academy of the Philippines is in charge of the coordination and promotion of the program at the local level. In this regard, DAP invites the public to register and participate in this FREE learning opportunity.
