The subaward program will focus on Mozambique.  It will support training of agricultural researchers at the master’s and doctoral levels and will link scientific and higher education communities in Uganda and the United States. The program is supported by a combination of funds from the USAID Bureau for Food Security, and from USAID Mozambique.   

Implementation  Oct. 2012 -  Sept. 2016
