Detailed Description

The OCTC initiative is a collaboration between OCA and FiBL which will develop and pilot harmonised materials for facilitating agronomic and business tuition for organic (cotton) farmers and trainers in India. The initiative demonstrates OCA’s commitment to strengthening the organic cotton sector as it will develop an agile tutoring framework that can be easily revised to ensure the longevity of the material and tools developed. The initiative is funded by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

By actively investing in capacity building efforts, the organisations hope to accelerate a positive multiplier effect: better-trained extension teams, better farmer support, stronger farming communities, better decision making and, therefore, a healthier rural environment that supports jobs and the planet.
