African Universities Tackle the Continent's Agricultural Crisis
Lindow, Megan
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n42 pA23-A24 Jul 2009
Pests, population growth, and depleted soil have wreaked havoc on agriculture in Africa, so universities across the continent are rethinking how they teach the topic. Some African universities have been building their own networks and pooling their limited resources to train more agricultural scientists and improve their responsiveness to the development needs of the continent--efforts that many African academics hope will be complemented and broadened by new overseas partnerships. Meanwhile, a handful of new programs is starting to take part in finding practical and scientific solutions on the continent's agricultural crisis.
