    In this course participants can broaden their international experience and strengthen their competencies to support seed sector development, taking an integrated perspective. The overall objective of the programme is to enhance the capabilities to translate the ISSD concept into strategies for making seed programmes and policies that seek enhancement by connecting to present practices.

    Public and private standards for pesticide residues have become stricter than ever before. Pesticide residues exceeding the maximum residue limits can hamper trade between upcoming economies and the EU. Implementation of Integrated Pest Management is necessary to minimize pesticide applications. But while there are plentiful technical solutions, the application of Integrated Pest Management is still a struggle for many farmers.

    The course is aimed at creating mechanisms that will support Integrated Pest Management though looking at pesticides-related policies, the role of the various stakeholders and innovative (technical) solutions. Participants will enhance their ability to identify and solve problems in Integrated Pest Management and food safety. It entails a mix of lectures, discussions, group work, excursions and fieldwork. Meeting colleagues from other countries with similar interests leads to mutual learning.

    Wetlands play an essential role in supporting food security, in making water resources management sustainable and in adapting to climate change impacts. How do we prevent that wetlands continue to disappear in the same rate as in the past and that these valuable ecosystem services are lost? We believe we need stewards who can advocate the value of wetlands.

    Restoring and maintaining wetlands is often cheaper than man-made solutions to guarantee water and food security. The course examines the roles wetlands play in the water - food nexus in a changing climate, and trains on how to value wetlands services. Attention to skills like lobby & advocacy enables participants to become leaders of change.
