From November 13 to 18, the PhD School at the Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is arranging a course on “Cocoa and Coffee in a Changing Climate”. The course caters to PhD students working with climate change and agriculture from a natural science as well as a social science perspective.
The PhD course is multidisciplinary and will cover biophysical as well as socio-economic aspects of the impacts of and responses to climate changes in the cocoa and coffee sectors. Themes covered include climate change and crop distribution, crop physiology, genetics, breeding and quality aspects, farmers’ livelihood and their coping strategies, and institutional aspects of governance and adaptive capacity.
The course fee of 500 € covers accommodation and full boarding from Monday morning to Saturday afternoon at the Forestry School Campus, located in a beautiful, forested area north of Copenhagen.
