Project document for regional MSc and PhD programmes in plant breeding and biotechnology

Abstract: 
The RUFORUM Plant Breeding, Biotechnology and Seed Systems Strategy (RUPBBS) is an implementation framework for building regional capacity in Plant Breeding, Biotechnology and Seed Systems. RUPBBS has been developed by RUFORUM in conjunction with its member universities and National Forums. RUPBBS is one of the regional strategies developed to implement regional training programmes by the RUFORUM Secretariat and the network universities. All RUFORUM regional programmes have been developed following a review process among the member universities. The review process identified key competence and capacity gap areas that needed strengthening. It also identified member universities that could be used as leaders to train for the wider region. Together with the leaders, RUFORUM developed regional capacity building programmes.
