Research at MUCCRI Through partnership with NARO and the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture (IITA-Uganda) and with funding from USAID, MUCCRI is offering both financial and technical support to a series of graduate students (both MSc and PhD) research efforts as well as research experiences for undergraduates. The different research topics for MSc covered by the graduate students include the following:
MScs to generate agro-meteorological climate-risk analyses to inform decision-making at national, community, and farm level MScs to assess what policies affect farmers’ vulnerability and adaptive capacity at the local level through stakeholder engagement, so as to create awareness, empower the farming community and trigger behavioral change of local policy actors.
The project aimed at increasing the resilience of watershed systems and communities through using the ecosystem and farmer field school approaches
It focused on enhancing wetland services to the communities as well as promoting appropriate adaptation options to sustain people’s livelihood
