In Africa, where agriculture is the main livelihood, food security, climate change, and trade are intimately linked. This is compounded by the critical role agricultural sector occupies in the economy and livelihoods of people. To make sure that policies in these areas are developed, reviewed, and implemented holistically, the training fosters a multi-stakeholder approach to the understanding of trade, agriculture and climate change that brings together sectoral groups in each of the critical sectors.
The purpose of the training programme is to facilitate development of adequate and holistic policies addressing climate change-food security-trade (CC-FS-T) linkages through active involvement of all relevant stakeholders.
The course is designed for policymakers, technocrats and researchers involved in trade, agriculture, environment and climate change issues.
