• ITCOA 2019 — People, Knowledge and Food Systems

    The International Training Course on Organic Agriculture (ITCOA) is on!

    This year’s ITCOA will focus on an important theme of People, Knowledge and Food Systems. The theme is based on a belief that: Stakeholders should actively get involved in agricultural and innovation systems from research to action. Without timely and proper communication, and adoption of by end users, research ends up not a good investment.

    We look forward to learning from all actors in the organic production systems of Uganda and further reflect on what ways need to change to better enhance people’s capacity and their positive influence on food systems.
