At each node of the AMEA Framework, AMEA collects feedback and generates learning that is shared with the full network. Our Working Groups are key in bringing members together to provide input and collaborate for improved interventions. Our Local Networks also play an important role in collecting feedback at a local level that can be implemented at a global level.
IWA 29:2019 (Global Guidelines)
One of the key reasons for choosing to work with ISO was its emphasis on feedback. Developing the IWA29 required collecting input from a wide range of stakeholders, testing the IWA for six years and reconvening to determine the future of the guidelines. The Global Guidelines Working Group also conducts regular surveys on how the IWA 29:2019 is used by members and external stakeholders.
Assessment tools and training/coaching materials
All assessment tools and training materials which are included in the Toolkit undergo peer review - identifying their strong points and assessing the degree to which these materials are aligned with the IWA 29. The materials in the Toolkit are reevaluated every two years by the Toolkit Working Group.
Tool owners also engage with users within the network to understand how their tools are used and where there is room for improvement. Members can collaborate to improve their materials or adapt the materials to specific projects.
Trainers and coaches
Trainers and coaches provide the network with feedback on implementing the assessment tools and training materials in various countries. The Local Networks provide a bridge between trainers (and farmer organizations) in individual countries and the global AMEA network.
The common indicators show members’ use of the AMEA-approved assessment tools and training/coaching curricula. The common indicators also provide insight into the effectiveness and efficiency of the materials in the Toolkit.
