June 8-9, 2017: DC Symposium: Intersections of Policy and Practice to Strengthen Agriculture Education and Training Systems (USAID)

The USAID-funded Innovation for Agricultural Training and Education (InnovATE) project is hosting a two-day symposium that poses answers to the question, "How do internal or external, national or institutional policies affect agricultural education and training (AET) systems in the developing world?" This symposium will bring together educators, international development practitioners, private sector players and USAID officers and staff to share expertise and experiences, deepen learning through audience exchange, and elevate the discussion around capacity building. We will focus on insights about policy environments for the development and strengthening of AET systems. The symposium will be held June 8-9, 2017 at the Kellogg Conference Center on the campus of Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C.
