IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY AND MARKET ACCESS FOR PANAMANIAN DAIRY FARMERS

Region: Panama

Areas of Focus: Agricultural Production, Education, Sustainability

In collaboration with: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and ANAGAN

This partnership’s purpose is to formulate and then teach a course for dairy and dual producers in order to increase economic productivity and milk production. We intend to design a year long, four-part course that addresses the needs of producers in Panama with the intention of expanding into the rest of Central America. Each quarterly part of the course will be progressive and build on the prior one. We will set benchmarks at the beginning in order to gauge improvements in efficiency and production levels from the start of the course to the end and after completion. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in interactive projects during the year and will receive a certificate upon completion of the course and assignments.

Goals:

1.Provide educational and technological tools to increase economic productivity.
2.Increase interaction between IPAGAL and small scale Panamanian dairy producers
3.Expand into other Central American countries with a well-established course template.
