Collaboration between FAO and Roma Tre

fao:rm3

I’m proud to announce that Roma Tre University and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have put in place a new partnership on June the 15th. The deal, signed by the Rector Mario Panizza and FAO Deputy Director-General Daniel Gustafson, will build a better and far more structured collaboration between the two institutions. More in detail, RomaTre will integrate in its two postgraduate Master programs “Cooperatives: Economics, Law and Management” and  “Human Development and Food Security”, specific teaching modules on primary FAO issues such as cooperatives, domestic agriculture, nutrition, micro finance,  gender matters, sustainable investments in agriculture and Voluntary Guidelines on the responsible governance of tenure of land, fisheries and forests. On the other hand, FAO will support the University granting teaching materials, access to online training courses, technical support and stage opportunities to the students. This is a big step ahead towards strengthening our mutual cooperation with a key international player actively involved in reaching sustainable development and a brighter future for humanity. Since 2012, when I was appointed Director of the Master program “Cooperatives: Economics, Law and Management”, I have looked forward to bringing closer students and FAO representatives in order to promote a better confrontation between theory and practice. Much remains to be done but we are on track. Read More
