13-16 October 2015. Nairobi, Kenya. ANAFE in partnership with the Finish supported FoodAfrica programme implemented by various CGIAR Center including ICRAF, conducted a training workshop for educators and researchers on “Effective communication with users of knowledge”. This training workshop was geared towards sustaining impact from interventions in agriculture. There is a great wealth of indigenous knowledge that would be studied more closely and appreciated if there is effective communication between educators, researchers and users of knowledge.

The objectives of the training were to:

  • Share experiences and lessons on best practices in communicating research outputs;
  • Equip educators and researchers with skills for effective communication with users of knowledge;
  • Provide participants with a manual on effective communication with users of knowledge.
The African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE), is composed of 136 member institutions (universities and colleges) in 35 African countries. The mission of ANAFE is to improve the quality, relevance and application of agricultural and natural resources education and research in Africa.

The FoodAfrica Programme is implemented in six Western and Eastern African countries: Benin, Ghana, Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, and Uganda. The Programme consists of three thematic components: sustainable food production, food safety and nutrition, and market access and extension.
