Agriculture and Rural Development

The course offers cutting-edge insights and skills on the linkages between agriculture and rural development; this includes training provision on how agriculture can contribute to poverty alleviation and rural development in low-income countries, as well as focusing on the dynamic interactions between local livelihoods in rural areas and agriculture understood as a globalised industry; the course also advances an interdisciplinary perspective on the linkages between global, national and local-level processes shaping agriculture and rural development by integrating knowledge from the social sciences, economics and natural resource studies; the course combines the delivery of theoretical knowledge with empirical insights and case studies.
