CTCN in Zimbabwe: Introducing the Climate-Smart Agriculture Manual for Education

Publication date: 
Thursday 8 February 2018

The Climate Technology Centre and Network together with its Consortium partner UNEP-DTU Partnership is holding a Training of Trainers in Harare, Zimbabwe on Climate Smart Agriculture. The training is organized together with Ministry of Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement, Ministry of Environment, Water and Climate and Green Impact Trust.

During the Training of Trainers, a manual on Climate Smart Agriculture developed by the CTCN and its partners will be presented. The Climate-Smart Agriculture Manual  aims to support the transformation of Zimbabwe's agriculture sector into a sustainable production system. It was designed to provide adequate and effective training on climate change issues to agricultural extension workers, so that they acquire the expertise to impart climate-smart agriculture practices to rural farmers and build resilience to climate change.

By targetting students, lecturers, and relevant stakeholders in agriculture education, CTCN’s technical assistance also helps further mainstream climate change into agriculture education and the agriculture industry.
