The opening of a special cycle to build the capacities of experienced professionals working in the field of agricultural statistics responds to the need to strengthen the human resources capacities of these services. This cycle is part of the implementation of the training component of the Africa Action Plan of the Global Strategy for the Improvement of Agricultural and Rural Statistics, supervised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.
The training, which lasts 10 months (including 3 months of internship), gives rise to the issue of a Certificate in Agricultural Statistics.
The pedagogical forms are adapted to the different disciplines in order to combine theory and practice.
This training is delivered through 4 distinct courses, designed according to the level of student recruitment and the career envisaged at the end of the ENSEA:
