India, Africa and the USA have joined hands to revitalise global agriculture education, capacity building and technology transfer through ‘One Agriculture-One Science: A Global Education Consortium’. The move has been made possible through the collaboration of International Crop Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and top universities of these continents.
Under ‘One Agriculture-One Science’, different agricultural education institutes, research organisations and other related agencies have formed a group to focus on addressing changes and adaptations required for agricultural education. Also, to attain food and nutritional security and sustainability productions in developing countries.
It also plans to bring various disciplines of farm education like crop, livestock, fisheries, natural resource management etc under one roof by providing a platform to overcome the challenges of accessibility and affordability. The institutions in this partnership shall also offer short courses, scholarship programmes and collaborative research opportunities for the students.
