The Agriculture Sector Committee is one of the four Committees that already have a draft Sector Human Resource Development (HRD) Plan. In an effort to educate stakeholders about mandate of the Human Resource Development Council, the Agriculture Sector HRD Committee participated at the National Agricultural Show hosted at the National Agricultural Show Grounds from the 20th – 27th August 2018.

The show which was held under the theme, ‘Enabling Food Security Through Profitable Communal Farming Practices’, attracted farmers and exhibitors across Botswana and internationally to showcase their agricultural products.

The show was officially opened by His Excellency the President of the Republic of Botswana, Dr. Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi. Members of the Agriculture Sector Committee including Secretariat also interacted with Stakeholders sensitising them on the HRDC mandate and the findings of the draft Agriculture Sector HRD Plan as well as the importance of agriculture in economic diversification.  The interactions between stakeholders and HRDC Team had reciprocal benefits since the stakeholders got to learn about the new trends in the Agriculture sector. On the other hand, HRDC sought feedback from stakeholders on their needs and perceptions which would be beneficial in the sector planning process.
