MetadataVis full innførsel
Following a visit made by Dr. Gustav Klem, Head, Natural Resources Division of NORAD, to Ethiopia and Eritrea, NORAD wished to offer assistance to three Colleges of agriculture (two in Ethiopia and one in Eritrea). This initiative was described as a fast and basic institution strengthening package designed to help the colleges to meet their basic needs and to stimulate further long term co-operation with AUN /NORAGRIC. It was understood that the level of development cooperation between the Government of Norway and the Governments of Ethiopia and Eritrea, was expanding especially in the field of natura! resources management. Based on the report and recommendation of Dr. Klem, the grant was specifically earmarked for the provision of teaching aid defined very broadly to include textbooks, reference books, audio-visual aid, equipment for teaching material preparation, laboratory and library equipment and supplies as well as transportation means to facilitate practical training and field experience. This was consistent with the urgent needs of the College. While the direct link between teaching and research was fully realised, the focus of the grant was on improving the quality of teaching through the provision of teaching aid.
