ACHM runs Training of Trainers on Holistic Management
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe: Africa Centre for Holistic Management is currently running a two weeks training programme to enable trainers to facilitate a Holistic Management programme aimed at restoring land, natural water sources and livelihood.
The training, which kicked off of on June 06 is attended by 18 trainers from Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The purpose of the training is empower trainers in Southern African countries to facilitate the Holistic Land Restoration programme in their communities.
“Most of the land is deteriorating. However, we are seeing a situation whereby most governments and non-governmental organisations are responding to the symptoms of land degradation rather than the causes. For instance, we are seeing most governments and non-governmental organisation responding to the problem of soil erosion, flooding and the never ending drought relief programmes,” says Elias Ncube the Training Manager for Africa Centre for Holistic Management.
In the next two week, participants will learn the Holistic Management concepts, how to mobilise the community and how to manage land restoration programmes in their respective countries.
Holistic Management is a decision making framework that ensures that all decisions carried out are sound socially, economically and environmentally.
ACHM conducts the training of trainers in three sessions over a period of six months. This year, there are two groups with participants coming form Madagascar, Namibia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana. On completion of the training programme, participants are awarded certificates of attendance.
