Event Description

This course aims to offer a systems thinking and systems dynamics approach on agriculture as well as skills and tools to design innovative, resilient and sustainable food systems. It looks at how to balance between producing food, managing natural resources, dealing with uncertainty and providing an livelihood base for the rural population. It will move beyond the technical realm looking also at the role and involvement of public, private and civil stakeholders for inclusion of social, environmental, economic, and political aspects.

The objectives of this course are to:
- Understand the global future challenges of food production and the effects on different scales of farming;
- Apply a system dynamics approach for analysing food systems in order to find new balances between producing food, managing natural resources, dealing with uncertainty and providing a livelihood base for the rural population in a changing world;

Target Audience

We invite technical staff, policymakers, scientists, private sector professionals and programme / project managers who want to build resilient and sustainable food system in their home countries, to enrol. Participants should be proficient in English, and have at least a BSc degree or an equivalent academic qualification and preferably several years of work experience in the agricultural domain.
