Climate Action for Food Systems Transformation

12th September to 22nd November 2022, Wageningen University & Research, Netherlands.

Climate Change has a negative impact on food security. Societies need to learn to cope with the changes predicted. That needs appropriate responses by government. However, in many countries the existing governance structures and leadership are not suited to manage climate change.

In this course you will not only get a full understanding of climate change but also learn about its impacts and the adaptation and mitigation concepts. It will also encourage you to become a facilitator of change. It will strengthen your skills for stakeholder engagement, policy influencing, advocacy, and negotiation to help you establish more effective governance structures.

Course programme in more detail

Our climate is changing and communities all over the world are affected. Changing climates have severe negative impacts on natural resources and consequently on food and livelihood security. Societies consequently need to learn to cope with the changes predicted, warmer temperatures, drier soils, changes in weather extremes and rising sea levels. At different governance levels and scales, appropriate responses are needed. However in many countries the existing governance structures and processes are not suited to manage climate change and the adaptive capacity and leadership to address the challenges is often lacking.
