The University of Georgia

The University of Georgia team members have been active in East Africa since attending the second IUFRO Extension Working Party Symposium held in Nairobi and hosted by personnel associated with The Kenyan Forestry Research Institute (KEFRI) in 1997. Subsequent to the IUFRO meeting, several of the Arc Project team members authored an invited paper and made a presentation at the Integrated Pest Management Communications Workshop: Eastern/Southern Africa (ICWESA) held in Nairobi at the International Centre for Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) in March 1998 dealing with our concept of utilizing information systems to assist in the implementation of forest and agroforestry IPM in Africa.

Since the ICWESA meeting Dr Douce has been an active member of the University of Georgia African studies faculty. Dr Douce has also initiated and obtained signatures on International Memorandum of Agreements (IMA) in the focus areas of forestry/agroforestry information systems between the University and Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya and ICRAF in Nairobi. Other IMA's are being considered with the Kenya Forestry Research Institute in Nairobi and Sokoine University in Morogoro Tanzania.
