After extensive preparation, the methodology for national stakeholders to establish their priority agricultural information themes is now nearing the application phase. The methodology, which aims at strengthening capacities in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of agricultural policies, will be promoted through national bodies, national and regional workshops plus a wide range of customised information tools aimed at specific stakeholders such as decision makers, farmers groups, agricultural services, and the media. Many of the materials are summarised in a special CD-ROM. These plans were drawn up at a regional workshop, with concrete activities already planned for Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Côte d Ivoire, Guinea Bissau, Niger, Senegal and Togo. The meeting was held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from 17 to 21 December 2001, under CTA auspices. In line with the oft-prevailing practice of subsidiarity, whereby responsibility for an activity is held by the nearest competent body to its stakeholders, the national contact organisations committed themselves to drawing up their concrete plans of action during the first quarter of 2002. Similarly, the Website featuring the workshop s Declaration of Ouagadougou and its report is hosted in Burkina Faso. A follow-up regional workshop is slated for end-2002, to review progress in the promotion of the methodology at national level. Website: www.cta.liptinfor.bf
