Courses & Webinars

Capacity building initiatives across the CGIAR Research Programs and Platforms continue to play a crucial role in a range of activities. These encompassed training programs for a range of stakeholders; the production and dissemination of tools and manuals; guidance on, and support for institutional and organizational changes and improvements; and support for improved practices and methods.

The BIG DATA Platform has launched its own blended learning and digital online resources as a part of this capacity development initiative.
