Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) Advocacy and Publishing (RAP) strategy

NBA has been responsible for the design and development of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) website (www.ruforum.org), which is managed and maintained using the open-source platform Drupal. We recently completed setting up a conference management system for hosting and management of the organization's events. Consultancy projects for RUFORUM include the production of two ICT brochures, for Kenyatta and Africa Universities. RUFORUM is a constantly expanding consortium (currently with 85 member universities in 35 countries in Africa), established in 2004 to oversee graduate training and networks of specialization in the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) countries.
