PDTIE – More than 200 young people from the Congo Basin participate in practical and ecological training

In the wake of its online courses (CLOM) and as part of the PDTIE project, the Institut de la Francophonie pour le développement durable (IFDD), a subsidiary body of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), has expanded its teaching offer this summer with a series of practical and ecological face-to-face trainings for youth.

These trainings aim to share practical knowledge to support the development of essential skills to stimulate scientific research, while promoting the emergence of innovation and the creation of new jobs.
