The Agricultural Heritage Systems Project
The International Master Course on Agricultural Heritage Systems is part of the project:
BUILDING CAPACITY: International advanced training course on GIAHS (Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems) for the resilience evaluation in three different socio-environmental and bio-cultural frameworks: Africa, Asia e Latin America.
The project aims to promote the knowledge of agricultural heritage systems and traditional landscapes, supporting the FAO GIAHS program, through training and research activities, especially in the Priority Countries of the Italian Agency for Cooperation and Development. The GIAHS program is aimed at the worldwide identification of agro-silvo-pastoral systems that reflect the ingenuity of human adaptation to the environment, expressing the richness of biocultural diversity and the relationship between man and nature, able to sustain livelihoods for local communities.
