Wageningen UR CDI Course: Climate Change and Food Security Nexus (16 September – 27 September 2019)

Deadline: 19 March 2019

The Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation (CDI) is accepting applications for its course on “Climate change and food security nexus”. The course starts from 16 September 2019 until 27 September 2019 in the Netherlands.

Climate change governance requires these stakeholders to change their practices and shift perceptions and accepted norms. Such change processes can only be successful if a learning oriented approach to climate change governance is adopted.

Participants will not only get a full understanding of climate change, its impacts and adaptation and mitigation concepts but also strengthen their skills for stakeholder engagement, policy influencing, advocacy and negotiation to help them establish more effective governance structures.

The training approach is interactive and hands-on. It includes practical fieldwork, case studies and individual action planning.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course participants will:

  • have a better understanding of climate change and its impacts;
  • understand the challenges climate change governance faces and explore ways to strengthen it;
  • practice to become a more effective change manager by applying social learning techniques and tools;
  • be able to understand innovative practices for adaptation and mitigation;
  • be able to place climate change adaptation and mitigation in the context of sustainable development.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The course is intended for mid-career professionals, dealing with climate change adaptation and mitigation options in developing countries, working for a research organisation, NGO, government or civil society.
  • Participants need to have a relevant tertiary education with at least five years of experience in a course-related discipline like agriculture, water management, biodiversity, forestry, or other natural resources management.
  • Proficiency in English is required.
