Eastern DR Congo - Sud-Kivu

Field activities

Reconnaissance trips to various of the Territoires of Sud-Kivu are being planned to start mapping of cavy distribution and the survey of production systems.
As the predominant cavy population appears to be in Kalehe, North of of the provincial capital Bukavu, the first survey will take place in this Territoire.
In the mean time, two Groupements in Walungu Territoire will be monitored for early adoption of improved forages.

Capacity building

Three candidates have been chosen to perform MSc studies; two of them are now in Dschang, Cameroon where they have initiated their studies at the University of Dschang.
