Upcoming Partner Conferences (2)
1 July–31 December 2023 Open Access Short Course on Multistakeholder Collaboration for Equitable and Climate-Resilient Landscapes
We would like to introduce the ARUA Centre of Excellence in Climate and Development’s (ARUA-CD) open access, short course on multistakeholder collaboration for equitable and climate-resilient landscapes, which was developed on the basis of the Special Issue in Land: "Collaboration and Multi-Stakeholder Engagement in Landscape Governance and Management in Africa: Lessons from Practice".
The course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of collaboration using video and text lessons and would be very useful to postgraduates and early career researchers. Participants found the course to be informative and helpful.
The idea for the course was conceived amidst ongoing interactions and conversations between ARUA-CD partners on the theme of climate-resilient landscapes in Africa. This project is the culmination of months of collaboration between academics, facilitators, and science communicators as we worked to respond to the real needs of early career researchers working in landscape management and governance and to help to fill gaps in current training and curricula.
