The Feed the Future Nigeria Agricultural Policy Project has conducted a capacity building training for fish farmers, researchers and students in Niger and Kebbi states. The event focused on value chain concepts and analysis in the fish subsector brought participants from the private sector, government, research institutes, as well as three universities.

Michigan State University (MSU) experts led by Dr Tom Reardon and Dr Saweda Liverpool-Tasie presented the current international best practices of using representative samples of key nodes across value chains to understand the structure, conduct and performance of value chains and their actors.

The training sessions provided detailed steps to conduct such studies and empowered participants to apply these techniques for a more accurate and holistic perspective of various agricultural subsectors in Nigeria. The benefited institutions were Kebbi State University of Science and Technology, Aliero, Federal University of Technology, Minna and Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida University, Lapai working alongside farmers. The 4-days training exposed participants to the skills needed for proper data collection when basic information needed for developing a sampling frame is lacking.
