Sustainability Research Institute After understanding the concept of a food system, you’ll be introduced to the GCRF-AFRICAP programme and learn new methods that are being developed and used to analyse future direct and indirect climate impacts on African food systems. You’ll then investigate how scenario approaches and modelling tools are being used to inform policy responses. Through case studies exploring diversifying food production and conservation agriculture in sub-Saharan countries, you will understand some of the strategies that are being implemented to build food system resilience. You will evaluate these strategies’ benefits and costs to communities, policymakers, and donors. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to apply ideas and concepts for building climate resilience in agriculture and food systems in your own country.
