RUFORUM OPPORTUNITY UPDATES

Untitled

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka is now a member of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM). Thanks to the tireless effort of our Vice-Chancellor Prof. Benjamin Ozumba and our own Prof (Mrs) Anthonia Achike in making this possible.

The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), established by ten Vice Chancellors in 2004, is a consortium of 85 African universities operating within 35 countries spanning the African continent. RUFORUM is coordinated by a Secretariat hosted by Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. The organisation evolved from its predecessor, the Forum on Agricultural Resource Husbandry (FORUM) program of the Rockefeller Foundation. RUFORUM is registered as an International Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) and has mandate to oversee graduate training. In July, 2014, RUFORUM signed a cooperation agreement with the African Union to support the implementation of the new African Union for Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa, 2024 (STISA 2024).

RUFORUM supports universities to address the important and largely unfulfilled role that universities play in contributing to the well‐being of small‐scale farmers and economic development of countries throughout the sub‐ Saharan Africa region. The consortium has several unique features for building Africa’s innovation capacity and for engaging universities in development process and practice.
