Southeast Asia Gender-Skills Capability Training Course: IPM, Climate Change and Biodiversity in Agricultural Contexts

The ASEAN FAW Action Plan is very pleased to announce the launch of the Southeast Asia Gender-Skills Capability Training Course: IPM, Climate Change and Biodiversity which will run from July 2024 to January 2025.

This hybrid course will be mostly run online over the next 6 months through a module-based learning system accompanied by two three-day residential courses. Participants will be part of an online learning platform and be guided through activities accompanied by online lectures and group discussions at the start and end of each module.

25 participants will be chosen for this first course. Students need to finish all module activities, complete a small group research project and attend the workshops to complete the course. Costs to attend the workshops will be covered.

The course will be delivered by the fantastic gender team at CABI - CABI is an international, inter-governmental, not-for-profit organization that improves people’s lives worldwide by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment.  Teachers will be working with participants to equip them with new approaches, perspectives and tools for agriculture research and policy.

Participants will be exposed to the latest thinking and skills related to gender-sensitive approaches in food systems research, policy design and implementation. And, they will get to work with like-minded practioners from across the region to help build regional capability in this important area.

To apply, applicants need to fill out a short survey at by 17 June 2024.

Participants are required to:

  • Reside in Southeast Asia. A limited number of participants from South Asia or Pacific Island countries may also be selected.
