Agriculture and agro-industry

Activities addressing food productivity and security, adding value to agro products and encouraging a stronger participation by farmers in production and post-harvest management.

Biodiversity Integration and Rural Development

Challenge
Madagascar and Comoros suffer from extremely high levels of poverty, and sustainable co-evolution between society and ecosystems is reaching a critical level. Due to the on-going loss of forest cover, biodiversity is dramatically declining in these regions.

Recherche appliquée pour la valorisation et la transformation des ressources naturelles dans un processus de lutte contre la pauvreté au Tchad et Cameroun

Défi
Une extrême pauvreté de l’Afrique centrale et l’appauvrissement constant et grandissant des ressources naturelles. Nonobstant les différentes mesures adoptées par les autorités compétentes soutenues par la communauté internationale, on continue d’assister à une exploitation «minière» et non renouvelable des ressources forestières existantes au Tchad comme au Cameroun.

La dégradation des ressources naturelles est particulièrement vraie dans la Vallée du Logone et concerne à la fois la disparition irréversible de la biodiversité mais également la perte du potentiel de production de la zone : ressources ligneuses, pâturages, fertilité des sols, ressources halieutiques. 

Shifting from Outreach to Engagement: Transforming Universities' response to current development trends in agricultural research and training in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa

Challenge
Agriculture is recognised as key to the economic recovery of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), but is currently characterised by low productivity, as elsewhere on the continent.

Governments and development agencies are working to revitalise the agricultural sector, and thus boost overall economic performance, through the African Union’s (AU) Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP). The CAADP outlines an African-led agricultural strategy for economic growth, for instance by enhancing agricultural research and technology dissemination and adoption. To support implementation of the strategy, efforts are underway to develop capacity within the National Agricultural Research and Extension Systems (NARES). Unfortunately, the human capital equipped with the skills to guide innovative approaches to agricultural development is lacking in most SSA countries. This is also the case at universities, which should be leading in innovation on agricultural productivity. But university research and training curricula are still too subject-based and do not respond to the multi-faceted challenges of poverty and other development needs.
