A training course was organised in Thiès, Senegal, from 8 to 10 June 2022, for ANCAR extension service supervisors, as part of the Fit For Market SPS programme. The training, which brought together 25 participants, addressed the demands of the local, regional and export markets and their differences, the respective requirements of each of these markets (regulatory, commercial, etc.), the non-tariff barriers, the steps to reach the desired market, and the technical and financial implications for both the producer and the company.
Following this training, ANCAR supervisors are able to make producers aware of market requirements, identify actions to be taken at the production level (and subsequent steps if necessary) to meet these requirements, and advise producers on the activities to be implemented to address the criteria of the target markets.
This activity is supported by the Fit For Market SPS programme, implemented by COLEACP within the Framework of Development Cooperation between the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS) and the European Union.
