Diversification of Water Sources and Production Systems towards Climate Smart Agriculture

28 February 2018: Application deadline!

On behalf of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) the Centre for International Capacity Development at University of Siegen is organizing the International DAAD Alumni Expert Seminar “Diversification of Water Sources and Production Systems towards Climate Smart Agriculture, Sudan”, 15th to 26th of July 2018.

This applied research seminar is the first out of a series of two, which will be implemented in different locations of the Nile Basin in central Sudan (Khartoum, White Nile, North Kordofan, Gezira, Gedaref) in 2018 and 2019. The consequence of two seminars will allow the analysis of two different types of vulnerable farming systems in Sudan, both located close to each other in the Nile Basin, namely traditional rainfed system and traditional irrigation system in its capacity to become climate smart.

While the overarching themes of the seminars are water and food security related to appropriate Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) technologies and practices in the context of the chosen case studies, the seminars will also tackle related and interlinked topics of effectiveness of institutional policies and organizations, socioeconomic questions, and the regional context of watershed management and transboundary water management in the Nile Basin.

Eligible for participation are German Alumni from East and Northeast African countries, working in the field of water management, irrigation, agriculture or similar disciplines, and acting as multipliers, e.g. people who are decision makers or people who are in a position to disseminate the acquired knowledge.
