MetadataShow full item record
Capacity is a critical aspect of development. Capacity development (CapDev) has been at the core of RUFORUM’s mandate and one of the most important result areas for the network. A key approach of the network is to facilitate engagement of universities to current and emerging challenges facing rural communities and in building capacity of young people to be part of the accelerated African agricultural growth and transformation (3AGT) agenda through developing and implementing relevant curricula driven by learning needs. From a capacity development perspective, RUFORUM aspires to be an important actor for CapDev in its areas of work in higher agricultural education and learning (HAEL) and agriculture and rural development (A&RD), playing a catalytic and facilitation role to deliver high-quality CapDev support grounded in national, regional and global plans and strategies, to partners and customer/client institutions.
