Climate Action for Food Systems Transformation

Since Vietnam committed to being carbon neutral by 2050, I have been assigned the task of reducing agriculture’s impact on climate change. A formidable challenge! Thankfully, the WCDI course introduced me to the innovative method SRI, which is not only more carbon friendly, but also generates up to a 40% bigger rice yield. Quite the incentive for farmers who were only just growing enough rice to survive on!

Ce cours en ligne a été vraiment animé. Animé à telle enseigne que c'est un cours vraiment vif, c'est un cours vraiment motivant. J'avais une notion globalement sur la résilience climatique mais la formation m'a permis vraiment de comprendre qu'il s'agit également d'espoir. Quand on parle de résilience, c'est pas qu'une question d'équilibre. C'est aussi une question de créativité et une question de développement. Et ça, pour moi, c'est une révolution personnelle à mon niveau.

I enjoyed the course tremendously. There were invited speakers that came every week. We were able to see what other countries are going through because they were from different parts of Africa and we could listen to their success stories.
