TRAINING: CSDi Online Courses on Climate-Smart Agriculture & Community-Based Adaptation
The Center for Sustainable Development—CSDi—is launching a fall quarter diploma module of four online field courses on Community Based Adaptation to Climate Change and a fall quarter course on Climate Smart Agriculture.
Students have worked with over 215 different types of challenges as diverse as increasing livelihood resilience, land rights advocacy campaigns, land and water use management plans, disaster risk reduction, health & hygiene, gender, food security, climate smart agriculture, soil conservation, water harvesting, participatory forest management and the formation of community based organizations.
These are online courses that have a local, in-country field component. Northern participants who don't have community access are partnered with Southern participants that do have community access.
Who should attend?
Course participants are of all different ages, genders and professions—and have included Southern and Northern development students, in-country field staff, grant writers, project managers, organizational directors, and donor staff.
Online course participants are using our courses to develop on-the-ground projects with real communities; students from 140 different countries and 425 organizations have developed projects that address 215 different kinds of development challenges and are impacting 260,000 people.
