Over the years, agriculture has contributed significantly to the Nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In spite of this achievement, a recent review of past agricultural policies in Nigeria has revealed that some gaps exist in the planning, analysis, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of these policies among those responsible for carrying out these key functions. ARMTI believes that the contribution of agriculture to the national economy could be further enhanced if these gaps were bridged.
This workshop is therefore, designed to strengthen capability of officers responsible for policy formulation and implementation with the appropriate analytical tools to do their jobs better. At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
- Apply selected tools in analyzing agricultural policies;
- Monitor and evaluate the implementation of on-going policies; and
- Use computer for analyzing policies in the agricultural sector.
- Overview of Nigerian Agricultural Policy
- Selected tools for policy analysis
- Problem tree analysis, development of objective trees and logframe
- Policy analysis matrix
- Monitoring and evaluation system for policy analysis
Lecturettes, case studies, exercises, group discussions and hands-on-computer exercises.
