Local Champions Exhibition Report 2016

Author: Procasur


As a pinnacle of ROUTASIA’s capacity building and policy dialogue, Procasur organized the first AsiaPacific Local Champion Exhibition in August 2015, in partnership with the Ministry of
Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Cambodia (MAFF), the Royal University of Agriculture of Phnom Penh (RUA) and IFAD.

Hosted by the RUA and Cambodia’s first Community Learning Center in Takeo Province, the 3-day event offered a unique opportunity for 200 leaders from all sectors of agricultural development across the AsiaPacific to share local solutions and to discuss partnerships. More than 60 Local Champions from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Nepal, Vietnam and Thailand represented the backbone of ROUTASIA’s Local Champion initiative in the Asia-Pacific. They joined farmers and organizations from the Philippines and Tonga and organic businesses to showcase their products and good practices at the Innovation Market. The enormous wealth of knowledge displayed at the Exhibition motivated the integrated community where grassroots organizations and the public-private sector are prepared, connected and ready to play a new role.

The Exhibition highlighted ROUTASIA’s capacity building process from the identification of solutions through peer-to-peer activities to the establishment of Community Learning Centers where knowledge is disseminated. The visit to Takeo Province, where Cambodia’s first CLC was built by the Local Champions themselves, proved the impact of capacity building at 6 Learning Station demonstrating their good practices.
