By Joanna A.A. Boddens-Hosang (ed.) This publication was compiled for the final seminar under the 5-year partnership in the project Sustainability, Education and the Management of Change in the Tropics (SEMCIT), Oslo, 2-5 September 2003. The seminar series has involved a broad range of participants from Africa, Asia and Latin America, who have reached a consensus on the urgent need for change in the tertiary education systems for agriculture and natural resource management around the world. These changes in the universities are envisioned to “enhance the capacity of universities to respond to society’s changing needs, making agriculture more economically competitive, socially responsible, and environmentally sustainable in an increasingly globalized world economy, and able to provide effective contributions to food security and poverty reduction strategies”.
