A new e-learning course has been launched by the SADC Futures project* to promote climate-resilient agricultural development. The e-learning course comes after a 6-part webinar series, and is designed to be engaging, fun and convenient for your busy schedule. The course is meant as a training for those interested in the topic, and want to learn the skills they need for better foresight of the needs of climate-smart agriculture in years to come.
Better foresight means plans, policies and programs can be adapted to respond to the foreseeable effects of climate change, across the entire African continent and beyond. The Southern African Development Community (SADC) region is fundamentally dependent on a resilient agricultural system and natural resources, like so many regions across Africa. Climate change poses a great challenge to this resilience, so there is urgent need to build the technical capacity to make those who work in the Southern African agriculture more resilient to climate change, and help to minimize its effects on food security and livelihoods.
