Online education and training in environmental sustainability for agriculture is a critical and pressing issue in today's world. With the increasing demand for food and the corresponding expansion of agricultural practices, it is essential that we adopt sustainable approaches that preserve natural resources and protect the environment.
One group that is particularly important to consider in this context is underserved populations, particularly women and girls in rural communities.
