Tigray Regional CDSF conducts its first CoP workshop

Tigray Regional CDSF Office in collaboration with the National CDSF office conducted a two-day Community of Practice (CoP) workshop on October 9 & 10 in Wukro town. Twenty-five (four female) regional participants who had participated in Master Facilitator Development Program (MFDP) Module One took part in the workshop which focused on tools and techniques of capacity needs assessment. The objective of the workshop was to review performance tasks completed by each CoP, enhance experience sharing and learning, prioritize challenges and suggest remedial actions prior to final submission of a report.

The performance tasks included readiness for change, assessment stakeholder analysis, organizational analysis and tasks analysis for making capacity need assessment.

Negash Hailay, SMS & Agricultural Package expert at the Extension Directorate of the Board said:“… carrying out performance tasks after trainings is a new experience for me. My colleagues and I have I received constructive comments from fellow participants and this-I’m sure- will enable us to execute our responsibilities in the workplace more effectively.”

Closing the workshop, Habtemichael Mezgebe, regional AGP PCU coordinator, said the CoP workshop was very useful as it focused on learning and sharing experiences among the different CoPs. He emphasized that the CoP members should complete the performance tasks by including the comments that were given before submitting the report.
