The learning modules, which target IFAD staff, consultants, project partners, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), are meant to help users understand environmental and climate change challenges, especially their impacts on IFAD projects.

The learning modules will outline IFAD approaches to climate change, environment and natural resource management, providing resources, best practices and tools for improving projects. The four modules lasting a total of two hours will help users understand how to scale up impacts and empower IFAD and its partners. [IFAD e-learning Modules on Smallholder Agriculture, Environment and Climate Change]
