E-learning Platform

Platform of online training related to themes on adaptation to climate change in land and water management.

The idea of the e-training course (training for trainers) is to provide higher education students, young researchers and technicians, representatives of industries and other types of stakeholders at INRGREF, IRESA and partner stakeholders a platform of online training related to themes on adaptation to climate change in land and water management.

It is addressed to the growing community of interested people to get a wider application of knowledge, through FAS.

Expected participants are not necessarily required to be specialists on adaptation to climate change in land & water management, but might need to acquire a sound overview of land and water management related issues across their country.
