Women in Africa

This international technical webinar is part of the series organized by the FAO elearning Academy, Agreenium (l’alliance de la formation et la recherche pour l'agriculture, l'alimentation, l'environnement et la santé globale) UN-ESCAP (United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific) and Future Food Institute. These webinars are an opportunity for all of us to share experiences and lessons learnt, discuss challenges, and propose innovative solutions and models. They aim to provide a holistic and comprehensive view of current trends in thematic areas related to global challenges, by combining development research and innovation perspectives.

The main objective of these technical webinars is to give practitioners the opportunity to interact with international experts, United Nations officers, University professors, researchers and fellow participants, throughout the world. Webinars can be attended as interactive online sessions on Zoom, where sharing perspectives and asking questions to experts is encouraged. These sessions are also recorded and therefore available at any time, through the FAO elearning Academy:


  • Recognize the tools and methods for quantifying carbon stocks in soils;
  • Understand carbon pricing in connection with the uncertainty of monitoring;
  • Present the upcoming Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on soil and climate.
