CABI’s Digital Learning Manager, Mark Berthelemy, joined a panel of experts as part of a webinar to assess the opportunities and challenges that African universities face with online learning in a post-COVID-19 environment. The webinar was organized by the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), a network of 66 African universities in 26 African countries.
Universities play an important and largely unfulfilled role in the well-being of small-scale farmers and the economic development of countries throughout sub-Saharan Africa. The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) supports universities to address this important role. Established in 2004, RUFORUM is a consortium of 46 African universities operating within 22 countries spanning the African continent.
