Web-based courses for capacity strengthening in the agricultural sector in developing countries uri icon


  • Reaching a large and diverse community of practitioners in developing countries to strengthen their capacities in agricultural research and development is a challenge for the CGIAR . One of its priorities is to build and strengthen capacity of its partners in developing countries in the agricultural and natural resources management sectors. Important audiences and partnerships for this are African universities and other learning institutions. Many are nowadays organized in networks such as the African Network for Agriculture, Agroforestry and Natural Resources Education (ANAFE). By strengthening these capacities, it is expected that there will be a broader impact on various others active in these agriculture related sectors
