Interdisciplinary land use and natural resource management (SLUSE)
WMI in collaborating with The Danish Consortium for Environment and Development (DUCED) and the Green Belt Movement (GBM) mounted the Sustainable Land Use and Natural Resource Management (SLUSE) Field-Based Course. The course is founded on the acknowledged fact that land and other natural resource management issues cannot be adequately handled by any one discipline.
The field course therefore brings together local and international students from a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, sociology, anthropology, economics, forestry and livestock production to address development difficulties of an identified rural community. The group explores opportunities for development of the communities towards achieving food and nutrition security as well as their empowerment. The Course utilizes experiential learning and research approaches.
