Take the opportunity and apply for the capacity building programme Land is Life. The programme aims to train future leaders and decision-makers from across Africa to build knowledge, understand measurement and develop leadership on SDG15 – Ecosystem and biodiversity. 
agriculture

Land is at the heart of what makes agriculture function in sub-Saharan Africa, and as such it is also crucial to reducing poverty. Globally, land is a critical and significant resource that is both cross-cutting and indispensable to achieving many other SDGs. Agenda 2030 contains land-related indicators under SDG 1, 2, 5, 11 and 15, each one including specific targets and indicators addressing land. The importance of land in Africa is multi-faceted and central to the achievement of sustainable development goals. In general, addressing issues of sustainable land resources access and management is at the heart of the fight against poverty, food insecurity; inequality; unemployment; environmental degradation; and the poor management of vital land resources.

The purpose of this programme is to build and strengthen capacity and skills in identifying and leveraging the synergies that sustainable land management and the governance of land resources stands to contribute to related development sectors. These synergies include the reduction of food insecurity, improvements in health and nutrition; promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment; sustainable environmental management; and enhanced adaptation to climate change.
