This is a collaborative project to establish research networks linking together scholars across eastern African with colleagues in Europe, carried out by one East African and seven European academic institutions. Project activities will concentrate on the capacity building of East African research, especially for young scholars from the region, through information resources, training activities and pilot researches relating to issues of development within the context of improved social and regional cohesion, with a particular focus on montane and lacustrine regions of East Africa extending across national and other political boundaries.
