CATIE will be teaching the online course: Environmental Conflict Transformation
- At the end of the course the participants will be better prepared to analyze in depth the causes and processes of conflict in the Ibero-American region
May 4, 2020. If you are a professional or a practitioner and you are interested in the environmental conflicts that exist in Ibero-America, CATIE (Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center) offers you the opportunity to get trained in the subject with its online course Transformation of Environmental Conflicts, which will be held from June 2 to July 19, 2020.
Angela Diaz, coordinator of CATIE's Training Unit, said that as part of the course, participants will have to share their own experiences in some of the conflict topics in which they are particularly interested, such as: construction of infrastructure works, dams, mining, indigenous territories, and land management, among others.
"Upon completion of the course, we guarantee that participants will be better prepared to deeply analyze the causes and processes of conflict, that they will be able to design interventions, that they will be familiar with the current literature on the subject, and that they will feel part of a community of stakeholders that can support each other in the future," said Diaz.
