Work experience
Sabrija Čadro, PhD thesis “Development and application of software models for sustainable water management and increase of productivity of agricultural crops in BiH” closely relates to climate change, climate smart agriculture, sustainable agricultural water management and use of remote sensing and IT in agriculture. Experience in number of international projects such as: Erasmus+ BUGI - Western Balkans Urban Agriculture Initiative; HARISA - CBHE Harmonization and Innovation in PhD Study Programs for Plant Health in Sustainable Agriculture; Challenge to Change programme: ONOFF AGRO - Online development platform for creation and realization of innovative solutions in the framework of agroecosystems. TEMPUS IV Project: Lifelong Learning for sustainable agriculture in Alps-Danube - Adriatic region. Also as a project coordinator leading following projects: Trailling Renewable Energy For Greenhouses (Caritas Switzerland in BiH); Also as a project coordinator leading following projects: Trailling Renewable Energy For Greenhouses (Caritas Switzerland in BiH); As a result of these projects, practical experience was gained in sustainable agriculture, especially the impact of climate change, drought and natural resource management (soil and water),
