CRS and the World Bank Launch E-course on Seed Systems and Disaster Management

Debbie DeVoe/CRSCRS and the World Bank have released a new free training program on seed systems and seed security in the context of disaster risk management. The five-module program draws on ten years of experience, primarily in Africa but also in Central America and Asia. It focuses on responding to disasters and emphasizes increasing future resilience. Though relevant to all regions and natural disasters, the training program focuses primarily on Africa and hydrometeorological disasters. The views are of the author, CRS Senior Technical Advisor Tom Remington, and not of the World Bank or Catholic Relief Services.
