Chapter 4 (Page no: 49)

A capabilities approach to designing agri-entrepreneurship training programs for conflict-affected regions: the case of central Mindanao, Philippines.

This chapter presents a conceptual model for devising trainings aimed at improving the livelihoods of the rural poor in conflict-affected regions by enhancing capabilities and mentoring the choice of functions. Specifically, it proposes the development of an agricultural entrepreneurship training programme to enhance livelihoods by fostering capabilities to become productive agri-entrepreneurs. The proposed conceptual model is complemented by discussions of how to overcome barriers in transforming capital to capabilities, as well as the human value and agency considerations for transforming from capabilities to "functionings". The chapter then presents how the conceptual model applies to an agri-entrepreneurship development programme for rural youth in Mindanao (Philippines), a region exposed to perennial conflict. From the Central Mindanao case study, training programme success and lessons learned are discussed.
