This one-day course is designed for people or organisations with interest to use beekeeping and honey and beeswax trade to alleviate poverty. It is not a hands-on course about bees. We do cover the different species of bees that are utilised world-wide, and introduce a range of topics concerning beekeeping in developing countries.

Training day topics:

  • Apiculture in developing countries and how it supports livelihoods
  • Problems faced by beekeepers in poor countries
  • Appropriate and sustainable – issues of technology choice
  • An introduction to honey marketing and trade
  • Case studies: success stories from around the world
