INTRODUCTION

Given the escalating population growth, intensified cropping, widespread land degradation and shrinking agricultural land, sustaining agricultural production through improved soil management is critical to the issue of food security and poverty alleviation in developing countries.

Limited availability of additional land for crop production along with declining yield growth for major food crops have heightened concerns about agriculture's ability to feed the world population. Much currently cultivated land is being lost through soil erosion, nutrient depletion, desertification, deforestation, and salinization or overgrazing. As agricultural areas become even more crowded, arable land is likely to come under increasing pressure. This also sets the livelihoods of millions of subsistence farmers at risk.

Integrated soil health and fertility management (ISHFM) is the key in raising productivity levels while maintaining

Agro Entrepreneurship & Market Facilitation Course

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Rwanda
  29 October 2018 - 05:30 to 02 November 2018 - 05:00
  Stipp Hotel, Kigali,Rwanda

INTRODUCTION

Markets are important for rural transformation and poverty alleviation. They provide the direct means through which the poor participate in economic activity as producers (farmers, business groups); as employees (providers of labor); and as consumers (of goods and services).

Working with smallholder farmers to design and set up new income-generating enterprise opportunities on the other hand is complex. It requires taking time and dedication to ensure success. This training programme aims at building the agro-enterprise capacity of rural development practitioners to enable them facilitate the market integration of the most vulnerable beneficiaries. The participants will be guided through participatory processes for identifying market opportunities and developing viable agro-enterprises that are sustainable and which are geared towards improving the incomes of rural farmers, processors, and traders.

Climate Change and Agriculture Course

30th July - 3rd August 2018

Indepth Research Training Facility, Nairobi, Kenya. 

In recent decades, it has been observed that there is a rapid change in climatic conditions which has resulted to several negative effects on human activities and development especially in agriculture and the environment. There is little awareness and understanding of the changing world in the rural areas where majority of agriculture and rural development activities are carried out.

Officers involved in agricultural and rural development activities do not have adequate capacity to inform and manage issues resulting from climate change. Thus, there is need to equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills in managing the effect of climate change for the development of agriculture and the environment.

This course is intended for audiences working in governments, funding agencies, and research and development facilitating non-government and Civil society organizations.

Introduction

With growing urbanization, sustainable city-region agri-food systems are essential in ensuring food security. Food production and market systems should increasingly be integrated into a holistic, systemic and spatial manner. Urban population rely heavily on all sorts of markets for their daily food needs. These are supplied through overstressed, complex agro-logistical networks often at risk of failure. This training program focuses on how rural production and urban market systems can be integrated such that urban dwellers can be assured better access to adequate quantities of nutritious food while sustaining the viability of the production areas.
