Capacity Building

With the recent addition of the Environmental module, a number of training workshops were held throughout South Africa to assist producers with a better understanding of the Environmental Standard, to explain the process and to provide guidance on how to complete the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ). 
As from 2019, once the verification process for the module has been finalised, the following additional technical capacity building training workshops will be held:
  • Training for those who will implement the SIZA Environmental Standard (consultants, extension officers, technical advisors and potential verification partners);
  • Training for producers who will be using the results to better manage their environmental risk and reports to markets;
  • Upliftment training on base-level environmental practices to train employees on environmental stewardship and the importance thereof in a farming environment.
