The African Journal of Rural Development (AFJRD) is an online open-access journal published quarterly. The AFJRD publishes original research papers comprising emerging issues in rural development; authoritative reviews; synthesis articles and editorials; chapters and book reviews as well as short communications that may not warrant publication as full papers. All submissions must have a focus on sustainable development of rural communities and improving livelihoods generally and as such, authors and contributors will be required to contextualize their work to fit this focus and scope. The primary purpose of the AFJRD is to share knowledge, on all aspects that contribute to sustainable rural development and improving livelihoods and development broadly as widely as possible. All articles and opinions therein published in the AFJRD reflect views of the authors and not necessarily those of the African Journal of Rural Development

AFJRD is published by the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), with an Editorial Secretariat at Makerere University Kampala, Uganda .
