Abstract

The SANREM CRSP has won an Associate Award from USAID to appraise higher education in agriculture and natural resource management in the southern Sudan, an area largely in ruins after more than 50 years of civil war. Because the region's higher education system has collapsed, few well-trained Sudanese are available to deal with agriculture and natural resource issues. SANREM's goal is to evaluate education and human resource needs and to help develop an academic plan for a new faculty of agriculture and environmental sciences at Catholic University of Sudan, the first branch of which opened in September in Juba.
