With lockdown measures making change part of the routine, switching to online resources for learning has become the number one study option. That’s why we are tracking free courses, webinars and events that might interest our readers – and sharing them every week in our newsletter: sign up in the box below this post to receive it.

For agriculture and food security professionals, or those interested in these areas, the elearning Academy from the Food & Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) offers a fantastic range of free online courses covering topics including: Sustainable Development Goal indicators, food safety, and nutrition and food systems. You can even try a sample lesson: Ensuring women’s legal rights to land ownership and/or control to kick off with.


We are tracking information on online challenges, funding calls, and initiatives dedicated to tackling COVID-19. Sign up for our regular newsletters in the box below for all the latest on these and please share relevant details to colleagues and friends to help accelerate solutions.
