BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE
Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) is the executing agency for the 11th EDF Sanitary and Phytosanitary (SPS) Measures Project which seeks to increase compliance by CARIFORUM States with international SPS measures, standards and procedures to increase international and regional market access. This objective will be achieved by building on the advances made in the implementation of the 10th EDF SPS Measures Project. The current SPS Measures Project focuses on the following areas: i)further development of the SPS regulatory environment in CARIFORUM Countries; ii)strengthening public and private sector capacity to comply with SPS measures, standards, and procedures; and iii) strengthening SPS capacity in the fisheries sector.
The activities relating to the development of the regulatory environment involves, in part, strengthening coordination across entities responsible for implementing various aspects of the SPS system. This Training Programme has been developed as part of the “Strengthening Agricultural Health and Food Safety Coordination in the Caribbean” activity. It takes into account the findings from the Self-Assessment Survey and the Training Needs Self-Assessment conducted during March 2021 and has been designed to be both concise and engaging. It aims to cover a range of leadership and management related topics collectively identified as training needs.
The course is designed to stimulate interest in the topic and further learning by participants themselves. Not all participants will have the same development needs. Some may feel they already possess particular strengths in relation to some aspects. Nevertheless, it is important that participants attend all modules as these are linked and interrelated.
Leadership and management development is an ongoing process and this course is designed to stimulate a commitment to continual learning. At the conclusion of the programme, participants will be encouraged to commit to sustaining the momentum both organisationally and personally through the use of the self-assessment process and the creation of personal development plans (PDP).
