Field Visit to RUFORUM Supported Research and Development Projects

In fulfilment of its vision and mission, the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) provides support to member universities to implement projects that are deemed strategic to generate research and development solutions. During this technical backstopping visit to Gulu University, the support team interacted with staff and students of Gulu University and provided oversight for on-going RUFORUM interventions as well as articulated envisaged interventions particularly implementation of the “Transforming African Agricultural Universities to meaningful contribute to Africa’s Growth & Development” (TAGDev) Programme. As part of efforts to twin member universities to undertake collaborative research and training, Makerere University also led a field visit to their Cassava Community Action Research Project that is of strategic interest to the research team at Gulu University that is implementing a project on entrepreneurship in the cassava value chain. This report presents a summary of findings and insights from the visit.
