In Africa, where the population is very young, education and vocational training are major elements in the fight against poverty and adaptation to climate change that particularly affects the continent. Africa also has great potential for enhancing local and traditional knowledge in this context of adaptation to climate change. The promotion of integrated and multi-sectoral educational and formative action is key.

This action aims at a multidisciplinary approach that would allow different training disciplines to be integrated. This workshop will bring together actors involved in education and training at the level of African territories, to showcase their good practices and agree on a common strategy for the sector.
