This document contains a selection of projects concerning East Africa (Burundi, Djibouti, Ehiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda) and is presented in 3 parts: (a) and overview of projects by research discipline; (b) and overview of projects by country; and (c) description of project-content. The Special Programme for African Agricultural Research (SPAAR) emerged as an initiative in the mid - eighties to enhance agricultural production in Africa by increasing donor co-ordination in the field of agricultural extension.
