Course: "Keys to sustainable irrigation management in the face of climate change"

FENACORE is a member of the European ERASMUS + FIELDS project consortium. In this last phase of the project, the University of Castilla la Mancha, which is also a partner of the project, has organized this course.

  • Theoretical part: (synchronous online): 54 h during 6 weeks (from February 6 to March 14, 2024), 3 days a week (Tuesday to Thursday), three hours a day (4 to 7 p.m. Spanish time).
  • Practical part: (in Albacete): 15 h during 2 days (April 12 and 13, 2024), 7.5 h per day.

The course aims to be a forum for students, technicians, farmers and other interested parties who want to update their knowledge on how to improve the agronomic and economic productivity of irrigation water in a situation of decreasing availability of water for irrigation. The contents do not have a high level of scientific complication since they are aimed at end users (similar to Grade II Vocational Training Technicians) who are in charge of irrigated farms that want to improve the handling and management of the productive system linked to irrigation.

Participants will have at their disposal the PowerPoint presentations, as well as the tools and models to help in irrigation programming and others that are presented in class, where there will also be comments and discussions on the topics covered at all times. The idea is to make it attractive and useful for participants, helping them in the sustainability of agriculture linked to irrigation in a scenario of increasing water scarcity as a result of climate change.

The registration link is as follows:

The Erasmus + FIELDS project and the Regional Center for Water Studies (CREA), of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), will give attendees a DIPLOMA certifying that they have completed the specialization course, with international recognition.
