“Stepping down in favour of stakeholders and giving them the floor to conduct the changes that they want to see in their domain.”
Hello, who are you?
I am Azara Nfondibie, project engineer and facilitator of agricultural innovation. I have a background in socio-economy and eight years of experience in project coordination, team training, capitalization of experience, and workshop and meeting facilitation.
What are your roles and responsibilities as National Innovation Facilitator?
I am a national innovation facilitator working with a network of family micro-entreprises for food processing led by women. I conducted workshops as part of the capacity needs assessment, and helped in the construction of coaching plan. I also facilitate the implementation of actions to build stakeholders’ capacities.
What has CDAIS changed for you?
I have been trained in facilitation, workshop organization, and implementation of multi-stakeholder negotiation process. I facilitate between the women’s network and their technical or financial partners. CDAIS has improved my vision of facilitation, by helping me to realize that the answer to challenges faced by stakeholders is held in their hands, and not in mine.
