Webinar: Farmer-to- Farmer Program: Opportunities for U.S. Universities
NIFA’s Center for International Programs Invites You to a Webinar:
“Farmer-to- Farmer Program: Opportunities for U.S. Universities”
Please join USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture as we share information concerning university opportunities in the USAID-funded Farmer-to- Farmer (F2F) program. F2F provides technical assistance from U.S. volunteers to farmers, farm groups, agribusinesses and other agriculture sector institutions in developing and transitional countries with the goal of promoting sustainable improvements in such areas as food security and agricultural processing, production, marketing, and youth development. Average length of assignments is three weeks and the program covers all international travel, in-country costs, visas, immunizations, health insurance, etc.
Representatives from USAID and three of the organizations implementing the program (ACDI-VOCA, Winrock and CNFA) will discuss how programs are developed in host countries, what type of individuals they’re seeking, what it’s like to serve in the field, how to apply, and more. In addition to faculty, extension staff, and other university professionals, the F2F program is also interested in attracting students currently enrolled in PhD programs.
This program is an excellent way for you to provide faculty and students with international experiences that enrich your university’s research, teaching and extension programs. It is also an effective means of developing or strengthening relationships with the agricultural sector in countries around the globe.
