PhD course: “Restoration of degraded semi-arid landscapes – Livelihood, Livestock and Land use”

The course, held in Nairobi and West Pokot in Kenya, will be linked to a new research platform “the Triple L initiative” involving SLU, ICRAF, ILRI and universities in Sweden and Kenya. Travel expenses are covered for PhD students from SLU and PhD students from East Africa.

The course will provide understanding of multifunctionality and complexity of rangelands. The students should be able to relate gained knowledge to their own research topic, but also to other disciplines in a multidisciplinary context. The students should also get an insight and understanding in participatory methods and experience in use of some of the methods. In addition, through small project work, do multidisciplinary analysis and reflection.
