The 2-2 Trade training and e-coaching trajectory trajectory can be attended by a maximum of 20 participants. and will be organized during the months July, August and September 2016.

Training contents

The training and e-coaching trajectory consists of:

  • The 2-2 Trade hand book with cases and tools
  • Two international training sessions in Uganda:
    • First training: 4-day session from 11-15 July 2016
    • Second training: 3-day session from 23-26 August 2016
  • Five e-coaching and e-feedback sessions: from June 2016 until September 2016

A participant will spend approximately 30 days in total on assignments and training sessions during this period of four months.
The participants form an international group of trainees bringing in their live business cases centered around farmer – firm relations.

After the training, participants:

  • Have a concrete plan of action for your own live business case centered around the farmer – firm relation
  • Are able to independently apply the 2-2- Trade approach.

2-2 Trade approach

The 2-2 Trade approach concentrates on business relations between farmers and firms and aims to improve these through a structured, yet flexible process. 2-2 Trade focusses on agreements and differences of perception between farmers and firms in a specific business relationship, surfacing the most important perceived strengths, weaknesses and opportunities. The 2-2 Trade approach and tools can be applied to any existing or emerging farmer-firm business relation that is of sufficient scale in terms of sourced volume or number of farmers involved, or is highly promising to develop into a sustained business relation. The 2-2 Trade approach is developed by AgriProFocus, Wageningen UR CDI and The Royal Tropical Institute (KIT).
