The Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR), Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and the University Fund Wageningen partnered to launch the Nature-based Future Student Challenges program (the Challenges) as part of FFAR’s Scientific Workforce Development. The Challenges aim to mitigate climate change effects in delta regions, which are critical for food production.

The Nature-based Future Student Challenges are engaging stakeholders and students to visualize a nature-based future and pathways of implementation. Students will develop maps that illustrate the nature-based, food-secure and biodiversity-positive future for one of the selected locations and surrounding landscapes, including a supportive narrative that substantiates the nature-based future and shows anticipated and potential impacts in the next five to ten years.
