SAILD shares its agricultural advisory tools and methods

From April 24 to 25, 2024, SAILD took part in a workshop on innovative agricultural advisory methods and tools at the conference room of Jean 23 de Mvolye center in Yaounde.

Identifying relevant approaches to agricultural advisory services, for scaling up agricultural innovations: this is the aim of a workshop organized by the Cameroonian  Forum Agricultural Advisory Services (CAMFAAS), in collaboration with the Network of agricultural and rural advisory services in West and Central Africa (RESCAR-AOC). Among the 25 invited participants was the Support service for Local Development Initiatives (SAILD). As a player in agricultural advisory services in Cameroon, SAILD presented its wide range of methods and tools, including The Farmer’s Voice (newspaper, platform and web TV), which provides information on the agropastoral sector; Hello Engineer (telephone calls providing answers to farmers’ concerns or problems); and the question-and-answer service (a service handled on demand. It deals with subjects by providing information from documentary sources); operating advice (makes pre-diagnoses and supports farmers in their projects) and technical sheets (technical sheets customized to farmers’ expectations). The other organizations present also provided new information on methods and tools in relation to their own practices.

SAILD benefited from the experience shared by other players. An opportunity to learn about other innovative digital techniques and methods.

The study covers 13 African countries, including 08 in West Africa (Burkina Faso, Senegal, Ghana, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Togo) and 05 in Central Africa (Cameroon, Gabon, CAR, DRC, Chad). In fact, as a prelude to this workshop, following a literature review and interviews with some of the players involved in farm advisory services in Burkina Faso, RESCAR-AOC drew up a list of farm advisory methods and tools used in Cameroon. The aim of this workshop was to select the most relevant and accessible tools and approaches for producers to use in their documentation.
