The mission of the African Centre of Excellence on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Agriculture (CEA-CCBAD) is to provide training and research on issues related to ecosystems, biodiversity, food production (plant, animal and fisheries), water, and productive and sustainable forestry in the context of climate change affecting the region.
This includes graduate training, knowledge production and valorisation in relation to: (i) protection of water resources, control of soil erosion, protection and better use of biodiversity, adoption of resistance crop projects, protection of forest production through, for example, bio-indicators such as pollinators, earthworms and coprophagous insects. The centre trains graduates in interdisciplinary subjects so that they are able to work with all stakeholders in the sector and secure jobs for other learners.
The African Centre of Excellence on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Agriculture at the Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny (UFHB) is mainly aimed at training master’s and postgraduate students. It focuses on biodiversity, and is part of a pre-existing regional network of 10 institutions focusing on climate change (WASCAL).
Since 2018, CEA -CCBAD is one of the host institutions of PASET (Partnership for the Development of Skills in Applied Science, Engineering and Technology) for the training of PhD students in the field of food security.
