A statement from the Aga Khan Foundation released this week, says that the collaboration between the two institutions aims to enable the Bilibiza Agrarian Institute (IABil) to contribute to the prosperity of small farmers by enhancing their capacity to manage and sustainably utilise natural resources.

Under the agreement, the Faculty of Agronomy and Forest Engineering (FAEF) will train small farmers and IABil teachers, and students from both institutions will also receive training through professional internships.

The agreement also foresees cooperation in areas such as the “development of laboratory capacity, environmental management and sustainable land and water use”, and conducting study visits in the work areas of both institutions.

The agreement further aims to train teachers, students and producers in areas of interest to the Aga Khan Foundation and FAEF, and foresees equipping the IABil phytosanitary clinic.

IABil is managed by the Aga Khan Foundation and has 413 students, of whom 149 are girls, and is located in Quissanga district, Cabo Delgado, one of the districts affected by the wave of armed violence waged by unknown groups since October 2017.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
