Enhancing capacity in Natural Resource Management and conflict resolution

In 2016, ITFC together with GVTC wrote and submitted a proposal for a project; “Enhancing capacity in Natural Resource Management and conflict resolution for stability and inclusive growth in the Greater Virunga Landscape- NICHE-GLR-264” in August 2016 to NUFFIC, part of the Netherlands Initiative for Capacity Development in Higher Education (NICHE). The project aims at enhancing research capability for research Institutions (ITFC) through training, capacity building and curricular development. The proposal was successful and as such one ITFC staff Emmanuel Akampurila got a grant for his PhD studies to be carried out at Ghent University in Belgium beginning January 2018. Furthermore, from the project, ITFC will also get two of its staff trained in Masters degree also in one of the universities in Netherlands this year 2018.
