Event Description

The course will use a mix of lectures, discussions, group work and field trips to offer background, theoretical foundations, as well as practical approaches for production and market development. Taking the participants’ own rural situation as a starting point, we will analyse the current situation, explore options that are already available for further development and design new systems to produce farm products in a responsible manner.

Upon completion of the course you will:

  • have a deeper understanding of how global development, trends and patterns affect farming practices and policies at local and national levels;
  • have a clear picture of the multiple aspects of agriculture and its relation with climate change, food and nutrition security, social stability and resilience;
  • have the ability to develop scenarios in search of alternative options and trade-offs in resource-scarce situations, using state-of-the-art approaches;
  • design own transition paths for the introduction of innovative farming interventions that are socially, economically and ecologically balanced.
