Transition to sustainable production systems
crop-livestock-environment interactions in a changing world
19 – 30 November 2012, The Philippines
- NFP Fellowships available – apply before 1 May 2012 -
Agricultural production needs change. Innovative solutions are a necessity to deal with challenges as diverse as climate change, emerging diseases, and changing urban consumption patterns. By looking at agricultural systems rather than their separate components, these challenges can be addressed in an integral manner. This course looks at how to utilize the combined potential of crop & livestock production systems with a people-planet-profit perspective; how to combine technological solutions with tailor made social innovation. It draws on the strong experience and expertise of both Wageningen UR’s Centre for Development Innovation and the University of the Philippines in Los Baños.
Interested candidates can apply to Wageningen UR Centre for Development Innovation for admission to the training. Click here to apply.
A limited number of fellowships is available from Nuffic - the Netherlands Fellowship Programme (NFP) for nationals of certain countries. In order to apply for such a NFP fellowship, you have to register through the Nuffic Scholarship Online (SOL) system. Applications for NFP fellowships should be submitted before 1 May 2012. You will be informed by Nuffic whether your application has been accepted. More information on the NFP fellowships.
Please note that for a valid NPF fellowship application you need to register directly at CDI as well as at Nuffic (SOL). Your fellowship application will not be taken into account if you register with only one of these two institutions.
