• Department of Computer Science of the University of Yaoundé I, Cameroon

    UNU-INRA and the University of Yaoundé I have collaborated to offer specialised short courses in Computer Applications for Natural Resources Management since 1998. In December, 2002, the Government of Cameroon and UNU-INRA signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish an operating unit to improve capacity in the use of computer technology for natural resources and environmental management.

    The operating unit in Cameroon has been running a bi-annual Training of Trainer course in the use of computer tools for the management of natural resources and environment since 2003. It is currently being coordinated by Professor Laure Pauline Fotso, who is also a Vice Rector at the University of Dschang, Cameroon.

    The operating unit is hosted at the Computer Science Department of the University of Yaoundé I.
