Food loss and waste have many negative economic and environmental impacts. Economically, they represent a wasted investment that can reduce farmers’ incomes and increase consumers’ expenses. Environmentally, food loss and waste inflict a host of impacts, including unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions and inefficiently used water and land, which in turn can lead to diminished natural ecosystems and the services they provide.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) involve collecting/capturing, storing, processing, manipulating, analyzing, managing, retrieving and displaying geo-referenced data. Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object. Wildlife management requires reliable and consistent information on the abundance, distribution of species and their habitats as well as threats.
There is the need to establish the frameworks to address intensively the lack of capacity to meet data requirements as defined in a recommended minimum set of agricultural statistics. The frameworks address the need for agricultural statistics to go beyond the traditional farm level data about production to data used to monitor the role of the agricultural sector in food security, environmental sustainability, and a driver for poverty reduction.
The main purpose of the course is to enhance the capabilities of technical staff involved in Food Security Analysis, climate analysis and agriculture by providing them with an understanding on the use of spatial and Earth Observation (EO) information as a tool to integrate knowledge about climate change, agriculture, and food security in a meaningful and innovative way.
By completing this course, participants will be able to:
The physical and social environment that surrounds us plays an important part in our health and wellbeing. The geography concept of ‘place’ thus cannot be ignored in public health. Whether investigating the level of environmental pollution, access to recreation or services, or the patterns or spread of disease, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provide the standard platform for exploring spatial attributes and relationships between our environment and health.
Data collection and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) have always been integral parts of development work. In the past, these tasks were performed with paper and pen, which made them prone to error, difficult to conduct on a large scale, and high in transaction costs.

The majority of the rural poor rely heavily on their local environments to provide basic necessities like water, food and energy. These vital resources provide the backbone of many rural livelihoods and their stability is key to securing the wellbeing of their entire communities.
The course is co-organized by the ASPR and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Defence and Sports in the framework of the Academic Programme of the European Security and Defence College (ESDC) and conducted in cooperation with the International Security Sector Advisory Team of the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF/ISSAT).
This six-week online course will be oriented towards the introduction and use of a new handbook for blending history education and human rights education. Through the application of critical pedagogy, this combination strengthens our understanding of actors, structures and processes of (in)justice in the past and present, and encourages us to take action to influence changes in the future.
Since the 1990s, gender equality advocates have increasingly urged humanitarian and development organisations to engage men and boys as a complement to empowering women and girls. This e-learning course introduces participants to principles, strategies, normative frameworks and policy approaches that have emerged from this work. Examining critical concepts such as masculinity, patriarchy and intersectionality, the course discusses why a holistic approach is central to achieving gender equality and explores the relationship between gender equality, sustainable development and human rights.
As opportunities for legal migration decrease and economic and security complications in countries of origin increase, people are forced to migrate irregularly. In many cases, they end up exploited for labour or sex. Demand for low skilled/low cost labour in the global north (along with well-established informal labour practices in destination and transit countries) as well as lack of information about legal migration channels result in migrants falling prey to smuggling and trafficking networks.
Gender mainstreaming is an (international) strategy to achieve gender equality. It is shorthand for saying that the impact of all policies and programmes on women and men should be considered at every stage of the policy or programme cycle — from planning to implementation and evaluation. This advanced e-learning course aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge of gender mainstreaming and gender analysis. It draws on best practice and case studies from around the world.
In this e-learning course NGO staff members, human rights activists and development workers will be introduced to the fundamentals of planning and carrying out programme-based monitoring and evaluation. The course will blend planning and management principles with skill-development related to study design and data collection and analysis. Participants are encouraged to come to the course with a project for which they can develop a monitoring and evaluation plan.
This course counts toward the Sustainable Community Development Certificate from Colorado State University and the specialization in Political Empowerment.
