(Re-scheduled) APO Self-learning e-Course on Value Addition to Agriculture Products, April 1 to August 31, 2015

Poster - Self Value AddIn agribusiness, Value Addition may involve the initial processing of raw commodities from farms into intermediate items that are subsequently processed in further stages, adding market value at each stage. It can also refer to processes that add market value through product differentiation, e.g. food grown and processed organically or in environment-friendly ways, regionally branded food products, hormone/antibiotic-free meat, farm by-products or waste processed into goods, and products that meet specific requirements of consumers (certified).

Value Addition concept and techniques help improve productivity and create new, diversified enterprises. It is also a good strategy for stabilizing markets for farm products to benefit small farmers.

The Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), is implementing a self-learning e-course from April 1 to August 31, 2015 (5 months). This course will focus on learning the basics, concepts, trends, principles, techniques, and technologies, and develop critical thinking and practical problem-solving skills utilizing Bloom’s taxonomy in value addition to agricultural products. A total system approach covering the journey from farm to table will be used in this course.

The structured self-learning e-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 10:00 am on April, 2015, ongoing until the end of the course.

As the National Productivity Organization, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) 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.

    Sir: First, i would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the opportunity to participate the Workshop on development of  business models for women entrepreneurs in rural communities held in Tehran, IR Iran. The workshop experience enhanced my knowledge in community level business development which i am continuously implementing to date. Second, i would like to express my intention to enroll in the APO Self-learning e-Course on Value Addition  to Agriculture Products. As a Senior Technical staff of DTI-Leyte, i am a Practitioner of value chain with gender perspective, in my field of expertise – project/business development in the countryside. I am willing to hurdle the course because this will surely enhance my knowledge and skill in facilitating and conducting a Gender Responsive Value Chain Analysis in the agriculture sector. Please enroll me in this program and hope to receive more instructions from you on how to access this e-course. Very respectfully, Rebecca M.
