The Centre for Sustainable Dryland Ecosystems and Societies (CSDES) and the Department of Land Resource Management and Agricultural Technology (LARMAT) will continue to collaborate with the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) to strengthen the drylands resource management program at the College of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences (CAVS), University of Nairobi (UoN).

This was revealed on 12/01/2014 when the RUFORUM Program Manager, Dr. Solange Uwituze paid a courtesy call to CSDES offices. Dr. Solange said that UoN is a key partner in dryland related issues in Africa and so RUFORUM intends to strengthen ties and work closely with UoN to promote sustainable dryland ecosystems and improved livelihoods of people in the drylands. 

UoN is the Center of excellence in dryland resource management after being accredited by RUFORUM member Universities to spearhead human capacity development at PhD level for Kenya, Eastern and Southern Africa since 2008.

During the meeting, opportunities for fundraising for the dryland Centre were also discussed. The Centre was requested to apply for the upcoming World Bank Higher Education African Centers of Excellence.

Speaking during the meeting, the CSDES Director, Prof. J.T. Njoka acknowledged the efforts of RUFORUM in contributing to capacity building at the University. He appreciated the visit by Dr. Solange and promised to collaborate with RUFORUM in future endevours.

Also present at the meeting was Prof. Raphael Wahome from the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environment Studies, UoN.
