The Myanmar Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation (MoALI) and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will work together to strengthen agricultural schools in Myanmar. The Department of Agriculture, Inservice Training and SAI Divisions are conducting a four-year Nuffic NICHE project to improve vocational education and training for food security. The programme began on 21 November 2016 and will continue until 20 November 2020. The Dutch partners of the consortium are MDF Asia, Aeres and AgriProFocus Myanmar. The NICHE project in Myanmar concerns the strengthening of 5 pilot State Agricultural Institutes (SAIs) with an outreach to the 9 other SAIs. Hands-on support will be provided with curriculum review, teacher development and ICT needs. It also ensures that the SAI curriculum will be better tailored to job profiles and real job needs in the regions.
