RUFORUM Global Research Alliance: Call for proposals for Graduate Research Grants

The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM; and the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA; invite applications from RUFORUM Member Universities for the second Global Research Alliance Graduate Research Grants (GRA-GRG) call. The GRA-GRG is aimed at building the capability of graduate students and post-graduate scientists in Africa to conduct applied research on agricultural greenhouse gases in non-Annex I countries in Africa.

The GRA-GRG will be managed using the RUFORUM Competitive Grants System, whose common goal is to support the development of capability in RUFORUM member universities to enable Africa to respond to the goals established by the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as national and regional priorities of African States.

Africa’s livestock is one-third of the global livestock population and provides about 40% of the agricultural GDP in Africa. Livestock will be increasingly important in the future in -Africa (SSA) because the demand for animal-source food is projected to increase due to population growth, increased incomes, and urbanization.
