About this course

The FAO's Regional Initiative for the Small Scale Family Farming (SSFF) is pleased to have you on board for the series of 5 webinars as part of the Social Protection elearning course.
This elearning is the natural continuation of the Technical Meeting on “Social Protection as a Tool for Poverty Reduction” that was held in Beirut on the 29-30 March 2017.
The e-learning series aims to continue the capacity building of governments in the region to effectively adopt social protection policies. It will address the definition and methods for implementing social protection policies and strategies in the agriculture sector and rural areas. It will also highlight case studies from different regions to identify key learnings from other social protection programmes. This space is yours!
