Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – 2 Trainings on Dairy Farming and Milk Processing
The DPRK remains one of the most isolated countries in the world, especially since international sanctions have been strengthened in response to its nuclear program. Despite the lack of information, we know that a large part of the population lives in precarious conditions. According to the latest “needs and priorities” report published by the United Nations, it is estimated that 10.5 million people are undernourished in the country, representing more than 42% of the population. The majority of children under 5 as well as 50% of pregnant and lactating women suffer from nutritional deficiencies, leading to high rates of malnutrition.
PUI’s intervention is twofold:
Within the farms : a support program with ato directly impact on milk production and its distribution to 3 400 children from 0 to 7 years, beneficiaries of the project, with a specific objective: “to contribute to improve children’s nutritional status and households’ resilience, through the reinforcement of goat rearing practices at community and households level, in South Hwanghae Province”.
Within the university : a cooperation program to indirectly impact on milk production through training of future farm managers and provincial agricultural policy makers, with a specific objective: “to strengthen the technical and institutional capacities of the Provincial Agricultural University of Haeju enabling it to play a significant part in the improvement of food security and agriculture development in South Hwanghae Province”.
The two training sessions will be realized successively and given to the two different beneficiaries of PUI’s projects:
To the Agricultural technicians from four farms of South Hwanghae Province. A concrete practical technical trainings must be given to approximatively 20 members of the breeding brigades from the four farms of the project. The objective will be to improve the technical skills of the workers, which will have an immediate impact upon production and enhance best practices sharing.
To the professors of Haeju Agricultural University. A High Training Academic standardsHigh-level training will be provided to 20 professors and researchers of Haeju Universit, to strengthen the level of technical and scientific knowledge of the teaching team and give the professors an update about the state of play of international studies.
The two sessions will last one week approximatively, depending on the consultant’s schedule and conditions: 7-10 days each (20 days maximum in total).
