Internationalizing the Land Grant Mission: Lessons from Senegal

CSES-207P The United States Agency for International Development Education and Research in Agriculture (USAID-ERA) is a five-year project (extended to eight years) within the U.S. Government Global Hunger and Food Security Feed the Future Initiative (https://www.feedthefuture.gov). The overall goal of the project is to revitalize the agricultural sector through education, research and discovery, and outreach. To achieve this goal, the project offered a combination of targeted short-term and long-term training programs to individuals or selected groups of participants from its Agriculture Education Training and Research partner institutions. This paper will highlight several agricultural interventions at community, private, and public sector levels using the land-grant model. Some of the agricultural interventions mentioned in the paper focus on those that have the explicit goal of improving food security by inducing multi-level institutional changes. The Feed the Future framework is to create synergies and collaborations between Senegalese and U.S. institutions to tackle the issues of extreme poverty and hunger and improve food security for all people in Senegal.
