Implementation methodologies

First of all, the chief executive officer will be responsible for all the activities.

Statement of work:

The Agronomist extension officer and environmental specialist will be the single point of contact throughout the implementation phase in the east Africa community; the chief executive officer will create a Statement of Work (SoW), in which all steps and responsible parties are described, including deadlines for each step.

Technical implementation:

The technical implementation will be stated ( provide access to systems such as computers and materials such as books and tools, telecom & IVR set-up and reporting system). There will be time dedicated to measure and test all equipment and tools whether they are working including other aspects are working in advance to start the assignment.

Training:

Training is will be a crucial stage of our project implementation. We will take through all our volunteers what we want to see being delivered in the communities, training will be conducted in each country for each volunteers based on the environment and type of assignment to be carried, every training includes one or more exams to measure their understanding on the taught activities and assignment, All knowledge is documented in database and standard operating procedure.

Arrangements for Capacity-Building and Technology Transfer

A technology transfer arrangement (“TTA”) in this project will refer to all contracts or agreement involving the transfer of systematic knowledge to all the volunteers. The application of a taught green economy mechanism will render good service. However, there will be practical benefits to those that will serve as volunteer to this project based on the technology transfer arrangement. Institutionalizing capacity building systems and making them as effective professional support are critical needs of large scale participatory development projects; we expect to train our volunteers before they go into the project. The agronomist extensive officer and environmental specialist will conduct the training with the government officials from the ministry of agriculture and environment for each respective country of east Africa community namely Burundi, Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania To support the decision making, necessary options are provided for every critical aspect of the strategy village Mapping and Indicative Capacity Building Action Plans will be prepared based on exhaustive literature review and interactions with several resources. Aid for trade logistics believes that the proposed arrangements for the technology transfer and capacity building would unleash the creative energies of the communities and project volunteers in securing the green economy.
