About the Portal



The Agriculture Training Portal provides agricultural specialists and development agents with resources to support their work to improve agricultural productivity among women and men farmers in Ethiopia.

The resources on this portal have been developed as part of the Capacity Development Support Facility (CDSF) Project – a bilateral Global Affairs Canada and Government of Ethiopia initiative.

The Agriculture Training Portal provides users with access to an extensive library of training materials, tools, templates, videos and e-learning courses produced by CDSF over the course of the Project. These resources aim to support agricultural specialists, extension staff, veterinarians and decision-makers in the agricultural sector as they work to scale-up agricultural production in Ethiopia.
