GOVERNANCE & LEADERSHIP

How to create member commitment and strong cooperatives?
Governance is the heart and motor of cooperatives. That is why Agriterra has developed a training programme on Cooperative Governance. In a few days participants gain all relevant knowledge on good governance within a cooperative or an organisation. We use a Governance Health Check, a useful instrument developed by Agriterra. Governance also includes workshops and training on member commitment, youth, female leadership and HR issues.
