ECCDI provides training to the communities in conjunction with almost every development project. Training is usually on awareness raising and capacity building. In order to enhance the (technical) capacity of local communities ECCDI conducted trainings on forest management & nursery practice, agro-forestry, aqua-forestry, agriculture, home gardening, livestock breeding, agriculture extension, fishery and livestock extension. Forestry, agriculture and livestock training preceded every project. The UNDP funded project “Technical training on agriculture, livestock, forestry/environment and micro and small business development for Nargis affected communities in the Delta” had been a special capacity building project implemented in 2010 covering one hundred villages in Labutta, Bogale, Mawlamyinegyun, Ngaputaw and Kyaiklat townships.
