To foster and engage young researchers to design innovative future agri-food systems for a variety of dryland farming contexts, ICARDA, CIHEAM Montpellier, FAO and IRESA-Tunisia have organized a 4-part Farming System Design (FSD7) Webinar series on Capacity Development in Systems Research for the Transformation of Agri-Food Systems to achieve Sustainable Development Goals under climate change.
March 22-25, 2021 10:00AM-12:00PM (GMT+2)
Anticipated number of participants for each webinar is between 50 and 100, especially from the drylands of Africa and Asia. The webinars will be free of charge, but participants will need to register in advance. Presenters will be selected from those that have submitted abstracts to the FSD7 and will include scientists and invited speakers from research institutions and development agencies. The webinars are envisaged to be interactive, with the full engagement of young scientists. To ensure a dynamic and participatory process, discussion papers by Presenters will be made available on the website ahead of time for review, comments, and questions from participants which will inform discussions during the webinars.
The webinars form a part of the FSD7 International Course for design and assessment of rainfed farming systems in MENA which will be held in Tunis in March 2021. The focus of the webinars is the transformation of agri-food systems in the dry regions:
