This teaching module addresses the following: What is the best form of cocoa farming that both generates high yields and is climate-friendly and sustainable? And how do farmers realities in cocoa production look like and how do they experience wider socio-economic production processes?
Part 1, focusing on Climate Smart Cocoa Production, contains 6 chapters. On-sight measurements and the analysis of meteorological data are included as activities in the lessons.
Part 2, focusing on Socio-economic Dynamics in Cocoa Production, contains 7 chapters.
“Science Action in Schools for Sustainable Development (SAS4SD)” brings together expertise from Swiss institutions of higher education and in partnership with institutions in Ghana and Cameroon, to collectively develop and implement teaching programs for science curricula that will, through interac- tive engagement, enhance students’ knowledge and understanding of scientific theory, data and appli- cations, and at the same time link theory to practice to raise awareness about sustainable development goals and ways to achieve these goals. The four pillars of the project are data collection from the Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) weather stations, development of teaching materials, research activities, and community initiatives.
This module contains material to conduct 6 sessions that tackle current climate change issues. The module includes hands-on learning with experiments, exploring near-time weather data from TAHMO stations, and suggestions for concrete actions to mitigate or adapt to climate change.Immagine: pd
