Universities in Norway and Ethiopia in cooperation, to improve the livelihood of rural communities.


The Institutional Cooperation between Hawassa and Mekelle Universities in Ethiopia and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences is at the end of its 3rd phase. The cooperation’s overall goal is to improve the livelihood of the rural poor communities (particularly farming, pastoral and fishing communities) in the Rift Valley and the arid highlands of Ethiopia through development oriented research, natural resource management, dissemination of findings, and strengthening the quality of higher education


Recently the end review of the program has been conducted and the program has achieved significant results in terms of its purpose and targeted activities planned for the implementation. NORAD has produced a short film on the program showing two of many outputs agreed in the cooperation.
