Potential opportunity for PhD candidates from Makerere University for a new INREF project that will be run from Wageningen in several countries worldwide (amongst others: Indonesia, Peru, Brazil, Kenya and Uganda) called SESAM. The project is about using “serious games” to understand the forest-water-people nexus.
SESAM is currently in the process of identifying suitable candidates for the Uganda case. This case would be conducted on the slopes of Mt. Elgon and look at the role of forests and forest degradation on water availability.
