The first video focused on climate change and food and nutrition security, gender dimensions in agriculture and Australia as a powerhouse of agricultural research. Thesecond video looked at careers related to our food loss and waste, climate-smart technologies and climate change and food and nutrition security curriculum materials. 
  • The benefits of a career in agriculture for development and the variety of pathways to a career in agriculture for development.
