Message to partners
Climate change comes with many consequences that are increasingly visible such as severe storms, floods, extreme heat and cold, changing cycles and duration of rains. This leads to many threats, particularly to the capacity to ensure food security, eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development. Faced with these challenges, concrete responses are expected not only at government level but also at all levels of society so that future generations can maintain their chances of survival. Thus, to fight against climate change and its impacts, the Paris Agreement signed on December 12, 2015 by 195 countries committed to limiting the rise in global average temperature to well below 2 ° C. To achieve this goal, each country must develop individual climate commitments known as NDCs (Nationally Determined Contributions) to enable all stakeholders to contribute to the common cause in a fair and transparent manner. To ensure this transparency, each country must provide regular reports on national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and their impacts on climate change and adaptation to these changes, to enable progress made in the implementation of CDNs.
The training and / or capacity building of technical agents, technicians, engineers and officials of the Administration working in the fields of the environment, natural resource management and REDD + are necessary to achieve the objectives of contributions determined at the national level and also at the project level. In order to support the various actors in Africa to achieve these objectives, IFED (www.ifed-inc.ca) in collaboration with Queen’s University (www.queensu.ca) based in Canada has set up this program of vocational training and capacity building.
Our training offers have been selected to meet REDD + requirements and will be provided by very high-level experts who will use innovative, lively, interactive, practical and operational teaching methods and approaches, allowing our partners to achieve their objectives. .
For this year 2020, we are offering residential and à la carte training and will gradually move forward to also combine online training to make it possible to accommodate each other’s needs. We therefore intend to personally welcome you or your employees to one of our training sessions so that together we can strengthen the bases to rationalize your activities while minimizing the impacts of climate change.
