PROJECTS AND FELLOWSHIPS THAT INCREASED CAPACITY FOR HOME UNIVERSITY

 The Integrated Pest Management Project, an international project sponsored  by the African Development Bank (1999-2002) for the countries of the Lake Chad Basin Commission which I coordinated, and the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship (1999-2000) which I won built great capacity for my home university through donation of equipment/facilities and/or staff training.
