The trainings are largely based off of the Smallholder Agricultural Market Support (SAMS) Guidance, which Tanager helped the WFP to develop back in 2017. Like the guidance, the trainings are designed to be both flexible and specific: we can’t anticipate every situation in every country that could occur in the future, but we also know that if we just provide general statements then it’s not really good guidance. That being said, one of the main things we consider when preparing for a training is how much experience country offices have with smallholder programming, since we want to provide information that is both relevant and applicable. We’ve facilitated training sessions for both individual country offices as well as for regional bureaus.
In June of 2018, Agribusiness Systems International (ASI) changed its name to Tanager and launched a new visual brand and website. Tanager – a species of bird identified by Charles Darwin for its unique ability to manipulate tools with its beak and adapt to different environments – was chosen to represent an organization that refines its approaches and techniques to help life-changing economic and social opportunities take flight. Those qualities of adaptation and innovation are reflected in the impact we have had in the last year.
