SADC Futures Webinar Series

Event Details
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 (All day) to Wednesday, July 22, 2020 (All day)
Time Zone

In these highly uncertain and rapidly changing times, the SADC (Southern African Development Community) region, like many regions in Africa, remains fundamentally dependent on a resilient agricultural system and natural resource base. Climate change still poses the greatest threat to the agricultural system and therefore technical capacity is needed to address these future impacts and adapt plans, policies and programs. Taking into account alternative futures, this tailored foresight training equips users to practically apply the range of foresight tools and methods for innovative strategic planning and policy formulation for climate resilience.

This virtual training webinar series will get you ready to apply practical and concrete foresight tools and methods to plan for climate resilience in agriculture and natural resource management in the SADC region and beyond. As a participant, you will engage in interactive exercises during the six webinars. You will also get a complementary Toolkit Manual at the end of each webinar and open access to the Foresight Training Resource Centre and forthcoming e-learning course which will all be accessible on the CCARDESA website. A certification of participation will be awarded to participants who take part in all of the six inter-linked training webinars.

The six training webinars will be run every Wednesday 2–4 pm (SAST) between Wednesday 17th June and Wednesday 22nd July. The webinars will be conducted on Zoom.
