Webinar: Smallholder Horticulture Empowerment and Promotion (SHEP)

The SHEP approach is one of agricultural extension approaches. It includes pursuing farming as a business — especially promoting the sharing of market information among farmers and stakeholders of the market, thereby mitigating the information gap — and designing a series of activities with consideration for farmers’ motivation.

This approach, first developed in Kenya, has by now been implemented in over twenty countries. Farmers who have received support through this approach are proud in and enjoy their farming. These farmers have experienced real improvements in their livelihoods.

SHEP has now been developed as a New Extensionist Learning Kit (NELK) Module. An introductory training will take place on Tuesday, August 24th 2021, between 10.00 and 12.00 Swiss/CEST time. A link to join the training will be sent to participants prior to the webinar.
