The West African-German network „Promoting Academic Capacities for Sustainable Agricultural Resources Use in West Africa“ – Pro-RUWA (Ruwa means „water“ in Hausa language) aims to train a new generation of regionally and internationally educated young scientists, entrepreneurs, and administrators. Future decision makers in francophone West Africa will be capacitated to jointly overcome bottlenecks in resource overuse and food insecurity at the national and regional level by fostering university education, international relations, regional development, and operational links between the academic, public and private sector. Pro-RUWA builds on existing structures of three young universities in West Africa that have recently decided to overcome the language barriers and internationalize their graduate education.
Pro-RUWA closely collaborates with the International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD), the East African Network of Learning of Administrators and Researchers (EANLAR), the Global Partnership Network (GPN), the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL), and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).
