Enabling factors

The PMNP has its own knowledge management platform, to which every member has access to. This way knowledge concerning pasture management can be accessed by all users. Further, a regular newsletter disseminates news and serves as a discussion platform. Once a year the PMNP members meet to discuss challenges in person. For this event, representatives from all districts come together. 

Lessons learned

The following lessons were learned:

  • knowledge management is crucial for the members of the platform;
  • participating in the PMNP encouraged especially women to speak about pasture management and enabled them to increase and share their skills;
  • the PMNP is a valuable tool to communicate with government officials.
