    Background to the project and the present project framework. This study was initiated in 2007at a sub-regional workshop in FYR of Macedonia, dealing with the opportunities for joint efforts for the development of the agriculture sector in the Western Balkans region. Human capacity development in the agriculture sector was determined as one of the key issues, and this study is a result of the research on the current status of human capacity development in the agriculture sector in Albania , Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, UNMIK Kosovo, The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia. National consultants interviewed the stakeholders of the agricultural knowledge and information systems in the countries, determining the structure of the system, the linkages between the organisations and the effectiveness of the stakeholder organisations (in terms of how they elaborate, share and spread information and knowledge within the system). This concluding report summarizes these national reports, provides an overview of common traits in the given systems and provides conclusions, and recommendations for the further development of human resources in the agriculture sector in the Western Balkans region.

    The project “Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information Systems (SAMIS) to improve adaptation to climate change and food security in Lao PDR” has the objective to enhance capacities to gather, process, analyse, and share climatic and geospatial information so that these can be applied to planning and decision-making. The present Training Need Assessment determines the training needs for the activities of the project related to the development of the Land Resources Information Management System (LRIMS), the Agro-Ecological Zoning (AEZ) and the socio-agricultural scenarios. This document also discussed the procedure for implementing the training process including in-country and overseas trainings. This assessment has been developed by the Department of Agricultural Land Management (DALaM) within the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry but will benefit a multiplicity of national level actors.

    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The first objective of the study is to summarise the conclusions on social impacts of discountand organised retail formats on the more remote areas of countries with economies comparable to Poland, Romania and Bulgaria over a longer period of time, whilst gathering general demographic and socio-economic data/indicators for each country and providing guidance on splitting these countries into geographic areas (i.e. from relatively disadvantaged to relatively well-off) to help identify locations o f investment. The second objective is to validate/qualify the conclusions from the first objective through a study of discount and organized retail formats operating in Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, and to draw inference and apply these conclusions to judge the prospective social impact of potential investments in remote areas of Romania and Bulgaria. The analysis and conclusions in this report draw upon a combination of different sources of information and insights. The first source is existing studies. The second source is statistical material from a variety of sources that could be collected through desk study work. The third source is statistical data and qualitative information we had collected in previous studies which is relevant for the current report. The fourth source is newly collected data based on new interviews and surveys.
