The Land learning Initiative for Food security Enhancement (LIFE) under the Land Information Working Group (LIWG) organized the community of Practice Workshop on November 28, 2017 at Learning House, Vientiane.
The Workshop participated by its partners to share experiences, lessons learnt and results; to identify capacity-building gaps and needs; and to determine priorities for LIFE and partners going forward.
During the workshop, the team from LIFE project also shared their materials that have been used for organizing the coaching for their partners such as poster, videos and using game to connect with workshop related to land issue and contract farming.
Participants in the workshop shared that the methodologies that LIFE used as the training tools are very impressive and creative, especially they help to encourage participants who attended the workshop more active in the discussion. “The methodologies they used encouraged me to be more active in the discussion and it helped me to understand the issue easily”, one partner of LIFE said.
Another partner also added that previous workshop organized by LIFE were interested to local government to participate and very engaged during the training.
Case study was also one topic discussed in the workshop. The discussion was targeted in the way how to use case study for which believing that case study will help to inform villagers to understand the issue happened in their community related to land, contract farming or related issues. However, the methodologies for collecting data for case study and the way to use case study for are both important to be considered which it needs a clear concept, especially the type of cases and issues and will be collected.
