From May 24-27, the second edition of the Nuffic-funded OKP course ‘Enhancing knowledge and skills of extension workers and farmers in efficient irrigation and climate-smart agriculture in Anbar Governorate Iraq’ was conducted in Erbil, Iraq.
The first course was held online in March with the participants gathered at a Covid-suitable location. Several experts gave contributions on the selected topics: climate-smart agriculture, precision farming and value chain development. The course in May focused on irrigation, hydroponics and best practices that contribute to sustainable agriculture in Anbar. The participating extension workers shared what they learned with the farmers they visited.
