By: Dr Nageeb Ibrahim Bakheit

Note: The article below is one of the first 'draft papers' on Curriculum Development for PID in education.

Most of what are now known as State Universities in Sudan are located in rural areas. This is particularly true of the Faculty of Agriculture (Abu Naama) in the University of Sinnar. Moreover, when Abu Naama College of Agriculture and Natural Resources was first established in the late 70s, the site was chosen near Kinanna Research Station, about just 2km apart. But, these location advantages were never effectively tapped for the development of rural communities near these localities, except for some linkages between the earlier Teaching Staff and the Researchers.
