    In this video Abbas Lashari from MEPCO explains how USAID helped him learn to manage people. Gaps in employee skills contribute to the sub-standard functioning of the power sector institutions and poor power supply to the customers. To eliminate these gaps, the USAID Power Distribution Program (2010-2015) conducted an extensive range of capacity building programs at all distribution companies, NEPRA, and the Ministry of Water and Power. All training activities complement the physical improvements and help to ensure that changes introduced by PDP are sustainable.

                Welcome to a new cycle of webinars focusing on inclusive market facilitation tools. In this special edition we have three 1-hour webinars that form a complete set. In this series, Eric Derks and Leanne Rasmussen share learning from this five-year, multi-million dollar USAID program, the objective of which is to increase Ugandan farmers’ use of good quality agro-inputs by fostering more inclusive systemic changes in the agro-inputs industry. As of late 2014, the program developed and began utilizing an M&E scheme that is expected to: Monitor the feedback from actors in the agro-inputs sector on the program’s interventions and use this information to improve their interventions Gauge systemic change in behavior and business practices—in the agro-inputs industry and explore the impacts on smallholder farmers Explore the limits of reasonable attribution to interventions Network Mapping is a method to analyze the structure of relationships in a group of interconnected elements. In the context of market systems development, Network Mapping can describe patterns of how individuals, firms, or other entities regularly interact over time. It can help the project team to detect changing patterns of connection, trust, satisfaction, investment in relationships, frequency of interaction, etc. Part of the utility of network analysis lies in the ability to quantify the structure of networks and, in doing so, behavioral patterns. These patterns can then be analyzed according to parameters such as location or attributes of the individual/firm, which can be tracked across an entire system over time.
