Partnership in Development: Canadian Universities and World Food. Background Study 45.
Tossell, William E.
As part of the Science Council of Canada's investigation of Canada's scientific and technical contribution to world food supply, a background study was conducted on the role of the Canadian university sector. The objectives were threefold: to determine the extent and nature of the involvement of Canadian universities during the past ten years in helping developing countries solve their food problems; to review critically the results of these activities in order to identify the kinds of programs universities should concentrate on in the future; and to identify changes needed to make more comprehensive and effective use of Canadian universities in cooperation with international research and development agencies. The findings and recommendations pertaining to educational programs which focus on training of people in and from developing nations, projects, faculty resources, and research and development organizations are summarized.
