Turning climate information into value for traditional Mediterranean agri-food systems
MED-GOLD project has the aim to translate state-of-the-art climate data and climate predictions — at the seasonal timescale and beyond — into easily accessible, valuable information for a wide range of end-users in the agriculture sector.
In the project framework, an online training event, MED-GOLD Living La, will take place from 27 May – 24 June 2021.
This online event is dedicated to early-career scientists and professionals in the areas of climate science, agriculture, business strategy, social sciences and communication.
The Structure of the event
9 sessions – 5 plenaries and 4 hands-on sessions – over five weeks, with periodic activities delivered by speakers across different disciplines relevant to the development and implementation of climate services for the agriculture sector, including climate modelling, agriculture and user engagement.
