Competencies

These courses were developed to support capacity building and on-the-job training and workshops in national and local food security information systems and networks.

The courses are open to everyone but were designed to target:

  1. Mid-level managers, technical staff and field personnel who are involved in the collection, management, analysis, and reporting of food security information.
  2. Planners, policy formulators and programme managers who are involved in monitoring progress in poverty reduction, and meeting food security goals and targets.

Providing students with the necessary tools for improving their employability, giving them the right to knowledge and education to be successful in the different occupations they will have during their lives, is a fundamental purpose of our postgraduate programmes.
