Dear Obert Jiri,
Greetings!

UN Environment is proud to announce the running of a massive open online course (MOOC) on Envirnomental Security and Sustaining Peace. This 8-week course starts February 11, and it is offered in English, with video transcripts and tests in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Mandarin Chinese. The course is free.

This is a great opportunity for youth (and others!) to learn about how the environment and natural resources can be a cause for peace, rather than conflict. The course is taught by leading practitioners and professors from around the world. It is also a great opportunity to interact with others from around the world through interactive discussion groups and crowd-mapping exercises using the UN’s MapX platform to enhance student engagement.

Environmental peacebuilding is a dynamic, cutting-edge field that is seek to improve environmental governance to support durable peace. It includes efforts to prevent, mitigate, resolve, and recover from violent conflict. If you are interested in environment, conflict, and peace, this is a fantastic opportunity to engage with leading experts, meet other people interested in this field, and learn how you can continue to engage with a rapidly growing group of like-minded practitioners, researchers, and policymakers.

The trailer for the MOOC is available at: be

Dear colleagues,



I am sharing with you the great opportunity to conduct a research PhD study at the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture - University of Tasmania (UTAS-TIA) based on Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The program includes full-funding resources for the high-performance candidate by UTAS-TIA and additional partners. Conduct a PhD program at UTAS-TIA will place you in a unique research environment. We aim to ensure that you not only make an impact on agricultural systems analysis but also develop the skills you need for the career you want at the end of your degree.



The PhD project will provide the development of skills and leadership in the area of bio-economic integrated assessment of irrigated agricultural systems, including the development and application of modelling and mathematical methods for prioritising technology and policy actions in agricultural systems (crops [barley, wheat, potato and pastures] and livestock) at regional scale.



Summary: Sustainable land and water management is faced with various challenges at the field, farm and larger regional and market scales. Natural resources are managed at field-scale but policy settings are usually regional or national. Likewise, the scalability of agricultural systems (i.e. methods used to integrate data and models at different scales) is often ignored or only partially represented. This project will investigate how water management impacts crop productivity regionally in Tasmania. We will apply existing model-scaling techniques and assess the drivers of yield variability for diverse Tasmanian agricultural systems. This innovative research will combine strengths in irrigated agriculture at field-scale with multi-scale modelling, multi-model analysis and integrated bio-economic assessments. This project will develop methods which can support improved water risk management and planning with better understanding of the drivers of yield variability and scaling methods.



To be considered as a candidate you will have:



Essential Criteria:

· Undergraduate studies (finished or to finish in no more than 6 months) and research experience in a relevant discipline area, such as agricultural systems, agronomy, environmental sciences, statistics, agricultural economics, geographic information system mapping, mathematical programming with focus on agriculture.

· Knowledge of agricultural systems.

· Demonstrated excellence in research (e.g. posters, papers, fieldwork, etc.).



Desirable Criteria:



· Modelling skills (mathematical, biophysical, climate models, etc.).

· Experience writing scientific code in R, Python or equivalent languages, and experience handling large datasets.

· Ability to work effectively and independently as part of a multi-disciplinary and regionally dispersed research team.



If you are interested, please send CV (no more than 2 pages) to [email protected]



Please, share in your networks. Do not hesitate to contact me for further questions.



Regards,

Jon

in Chinyika, Gutu. The best technique to prepare land for tree planting.

Pits of at least 30cm x 30cm x 30cm are dug in the dry season or prior to the rain season. The pits are manure added, upto 50% and mixed with soil then left until the rain season to plant the trees.

The concept is a climate friendly and moisture stress-proof. This means success rate of planting is increased to 100%.

Yesterday was remarkable, in a partnership with
Agro Forestry Association
as we trained farmers and interested individuals the fundamentals of Tree Propagation.

Propagation techniques are important in the capacitation of youths in driving the economy towards achieving climate change resilience and poverty eradication especially through a Robust Reforestation Initiative.

This is in line with the vision to make Zimbabwe an Upper Middle Income Economy by 2030, National Development Strategy 1 and the SDGs.
