This book is the offspring of the Energy_Agro-Food Synergies in Africa: New Educational Models for Universities, a project co-funded by the EU within the EDULINK II, the ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Higher Education. The Energy_Agro-Food Project arose from the need to face two crucial issues for the future of East Africa: first, the nexus that links bioenergy and the agro-food sectors with the role that these could have in the socio-economic development of the region; and, second, the capacity of African Universities to fulfill the demand for qualified professionals on the labour market. The present publication represents an outstanding output of the project: it embodies all efforts of researchers to extend the University's capacity to open dialogue with the society as a whole. In particular, this book is designed as teaching material for the African Partner Universities in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, thus it is a source of information that supports students' academic understanding, growth, and specialization.

Abstract

This book is the offspring of the Energy_Agro-Food Synergies in Africa: New Educational Models for Universities, a project co-funded by the EU within the EDULINK II, the ACP-EU Cooperation Programme in Higher Education. The Energy_Agro-Food Project arose from the need to face two crucial issues for the future of East Africa: first, the nexus that links bioenergy and the agro-food sectors with the role that these could have in the socio-economic development of the region; and, second, the capacity of African Universities to fulfill the demand for qualified professionals on the labour market. The present publication represents an outstanding output of the project: it embodies all efforts of researchers to extend the University's capacity to open dialogue with the society as a whole. In particular, this book is designed as teaching material for the African Partner Universities in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, thus it is a source of information that supports students' academic understanding, growth, and specialization.
