Vol. 2 No. 1 (2017): Strengthening research capacity of African Agricultural Higher Education Institutions

The African Journal of Rural Development (AFJRD) is focused on issues that affect sustainable rural development. The articles contained in this issue of the AFJRD, Volume 2 Issue 1 demonstrate the contributions that scientists affiliated with African Agricultural Higher Education Institutions (AHEI) can make to increasing agricultural productivity, food and nutrition security and improved livelihoods in sub-Saharan Africa. These institutions are essential to sustainable agricultural development because they are responsible for training the next generations of scientists and policy makers, communicating  science to the general population, and through their research, addressing critical challenges to food security facing the continent.
