The ARUA Centre of Excellence in Climate Change and Development (ARUA- CD)


The African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA- CD) is a network of Universities from different countries and different historical backgrounds, but with a common vision. ARUA is pursuing its goal of enhancing research and graduate training in member universities through a number of channels, including the setting up of Centre of Excellence (CoEs) to be hosted by member universities . The ARUA CoEs are intended to be focal points for aggregating world- class researchers from member universities to undertake collaborative research in priority thematic areas while providing opportunities for graduate students from the region and elsewhere to work with the researchers.
