Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is an increasingly appreciated approach that aims at ensuring food security, while lowering greenhouse gas emissions, and increasing the resilience of agricultural systems to climate change. Despite its promises CSA is facing various challenges that could hamper its implementation, including synergies and trade-offs among different aims and context-specificity of solutions.
This course addresses these challenges by approaching CSA from various perspectives including animal & plant sciences, politics & governance, and business & finance, in an interdisciplinary manner. It provides participants with an overview of the up-to-date knowledge about CSA, and demonstrate the opportunities, challenges and trade-offs. The summer school offers ample opportunities to network with experts and fellow candidates from around the world in the field of CSA.
