Food Security and Agriculture

Training Course on Food Security and Agriculture

Course Overview

The Global Food Security Strategy calls for expanding work in improving nutrition and resilience. This course underscores Perk Group’s focus on food security development and incorporates the participant’s vision for food security and agriculture development.  Through this training, participants will be able to address challenges through building a common understanding of their priorities, challenges and key issues in agriculture and food security.  Participants will explore current thinking that can be applied to new and existing strategies which will assist them in designing interventions that achieve greater and more targeted results.

The course will examine adaptation in theory and in practice, through a focus on four sectors that are critically important for climate-resilient development in Africa: Water Security, Agriculture and Food Security, Ecosystems, and Ecosystem Services.

The Course will cover three broad spectrums

Agriculture and Food Security

We’ll start off looking at the nature of agriculture across regions in Africa and the current situation of food security. Eradicating poverty through creating food security is a key sustainable development goal. We will analyse food security in terms of availability, access and utilisation - and how each of these aspects can be affected by climate change. I’ll be providing some information about the projected impacts of climate change on agriculture before moving onto look at adaptive strategies. The cases this week offer a rich variety of contextual examples from smart agriculture in Mauritius to changes being made by Namibian livestock farmers.
