College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has identified the need to incorporate Integrated Natural Resource Management principles into its strategy and curricula as a means to resolving complex environmental problems.
CANR is supported by its Dutch partners in embedding INRM principles in its strategy, academic programmes, job descriptions, plans and budgets. The involvement and commitment of CANR/KNUST higher management is of crucial importance to the achievement of the project objective. As part of the embedding process, the capacity building of KNUST staff will be consolidated to enable them to design and deliver INRM learning programmes for different target groups. Additionally, INRM principles will be incorporated in the academic programmes. Reflection/Monitoring & Evaluation and a strong and continuous stakeholder engagement are the two cross-cutting elements of the project. More and more CANR staff is getting involved. Working groups have been formed to ensure the embedding of INRM within CANR and to support the design and delivery of training programmes. Staff are being prepared for their new role as change agents in the implementation of CANR’s strategy towards the incorporation of INRM and will be available to participate in the proposed project activities.
