Tool 1 facilitating the exercising of choice

Tool 1: Facilitating the exercising of choice…

  • Develop a shared vision

  • Identify opportunities for knowledge exchange

  • Establish a facilitation team (PDT)

  • Set learning objectives

  • Plan how to achieve learning objectives

  • Demonstrate the technologies

  • Identify interested early adopters (who may become champions)

  • Receive and respond to hardware, software, and orgware technology innovations

  • Ensure technologies are maintained in good running order


Example of application of the tech rec framework tool

Example of application of the Tech Rec Framework tool

  • The Rooibos Experience

    • Background to project/community

    • Application


The rooibos experience

The Rooibos Experience

  • Background: Suid Bokkeveld Community, Northern Cape

  • Ecological & Climate Context:

    • Endemic plants, Aspalathus linearis = rooibos (english: red bush)

    • Living lab for adaptation of plants – drought, higher temp

    • Rooibos production limited - soil type & depth & low rainfall

  • The People & Farming

    • Small-scale farmers & their families

    • Rooibos (seed), small stock & farm labour

  • Access to rooibos & tourism markets limited = isolation

    • Limited perceptions to opportunities


The rooibos experience1

The Rooibos Experience

  • Application

  • Based on a Shared Vision for Development (STEP 1)

  • Community Exchange Visits- link to rooibos & tourism initiatives(STEP 2 – identify opportunities for knowledge exchange)

  • Preparation & Implementation:

    • Established a PDT / facilitation team (STEP 3)

    • Participatory planning workshops – incl. community members, govt, NGOs.

    • Established learning objectives(STEP 4) (organic production & prices & CB-tourism)with community

    • Achieving learning objectives- methodology developed with participants for conducting visits & feedback mechanism to community(STEP 5)


The rooibos experience2

The Rooibos Experience

  • Technologies are demonstrated - Exchange Visits

    (STEP 6)

    • Visits to organic production of indigenous tea (techniques, processing & marketing; CBNRM) & cultural & ecotourism projects (community mobilisation & organisation, small-business dev)

  • Identification of interested and early adopters (STEP 7) - team skills of participants developed – activity planning, assigning of roles, group contracts developed – emerging leaders


The rooibos experience3

The Rooibos Experience

  • Receive and respond to hardware, software, and orgware technology innovations(STEP 8)

    Stimulating new processes  innovations & ownership

    • greatest amount of input & support needed to succeed


The rooibos experience4

The Rooibos Experience

  • Process led to establishment & ownershipof:

    • Small-scale producer co-operative – conversion to organic production (+ve env effect) = export to organic & fair trade rooibos markets (access) & fair prices

    • Farmer study group – (technical) capacity issues

    • Farmer participatory research – sustainable harvesting of wild rooibos (science & indigenous knowledge)

    • Women’s groupestablished a tourist facility & growing

  • Ensure technologies are maintained and in good running order.(STEP 8 & 9) – further support needed
