Soil & Water Management Senior Expert at the Natural Resource Directorate of BoA, Endalkachew Kasa, has the following to say about the COP event:

     “…I have been working with the MoNAR in different capacities for more than 20 years- as expert, team leader and office head. I have taken many trainings organized by many different organizations. What makes the MFDP unique is that it evaluates and assesses the application of the training at the work place. Also as MFDP is mostly skills based training, I believe it will help to solve the capacity needs assessment problems that exists in my department as well as other departments in my organization.”

Ato Abraham Muche, director of Agricultural Extension and Ato Solomon Kumlachew, Director of Crop Department both said, “ …the training as well as the COP will help to improve AGP performance and meet BoA target as they focus  on areas that participants apply in their daily work.
