UEM contributes significantly to several tasks and activities across different WPs.
The Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) is a national public institution, the oldest institution of higher education in Mozambique. Currently it counts 37,000 undergraduate and 3,000 post-graduates students. It has 11 faculties and 6 schools.
Research in agronomy
The UEM team has worked in research projects related with agronomy for more than 15 years which resulted in a build-up of local knowledge on soil use and land cover, plant growth, agriculture practices and assessment of the drivers of deforestation and forest degradation in Mozambique. These works include habitat mapping in Mozambique funded by USAID/WWF and studies related with soil, land use, and pasture biomass that were financed by FAO.
This University has long collaborated with the Ministry of Agriculture, which will be the user of the integrated agricultural monitoring and early warning system that will be generated by AfriCultuReS in Mozambique.
