In the frame of its Living Lab process, FASTER is organising a Summer School for Farmer Advisory Services from 24 May to 4 June 2021.

The Summer School will provide tailored training activities on adaptation to climate change to practitioners of the agricultural sector engaged in the Tunisian Farm Advisory System. These courses aim to provide participants with a solid theoretical background on these topics, also including specific training on how to communicate engagingly and effectively the solutions proposed in the factsheets to farmers and decision-makers.

During the first week of the Summer School, international experts will lead training sessions on issues related to adaptation strategies to face climate change. The second week will be destined for an in-depth debate about the four topics learned during the previous week (water, soil and forest management, fishery and crop production).

FASTER (Farmers’ Adaptation and Sustainability in Tunisia through Excellence in Research) aims to reinforce research and knowledge transfer capacity of INRGREF (National Research Institute of Rural Engineering, Water and Forests) related to innovative land and water management in view of climate change and its implementation through the use of Farm Advisory Systems (FAS). This project has received funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
