IFSTAL runs overseas food systems training courses in partnership with in-country universities and regional stakeholders.
As food demand grows, in tandem with economic growth, urbanisation and an emerging middle class, the stresses on food systems and institutions and natural resources that underpin them, grow ever greater. The need to enhance the capability of graduate students to address the challenging, societal-level issues when they enter the world of work is becoming increasingly clear.
IFSTAL’s international courses are aimed at both graduate students and young professionals working in public, private, civil society and non-governmental organisations.
IFSTAL International has already delivered food systems training in Ghana and Indonesia. In 2020, IFSTAL courses will be delivered in Uganda and in the Pacific (Fiji, Vanuatu/Solomon Islands and Samoa). There are also plans to establish IFSTAL ‘analogues’ in Australia and Canada.
