Welcome to the CDAE “Curriculum Development in Agroecology” Project
The innovative character of the CDAE project lies on the fact that it aims to create a new MSc programme in a specialized academic area and key regulatory/policy issue, namely “Agroecology” that is as much absent from Partner HEI graduate and postgraduate programmes. The project aims to address this absence and the needs of the region and to deliver an MSc programme that will incorporate ecological principles and knowledge into the study of cropping and farming systems. In addition, it will introduce ecological rationality and methods into agriculture to minimize chemical inputs and costs, complement watershed and field conservation programmes, plan systems according to local resources and land capabilities, and make efficient use of water, nutrients and genetic resources. As a result, professionals will be well prepared for the future design and management of a sustainable agriculture.
