IPGL- International Training Programmes in Limnology
IPGL coordinates a variety of training programmes and acts as interface platform linking institutions of Higher Education & Research world-wide. IPGL aims to support research capacity enhancement processes in developing countries for achieving the Millenium Development Goals. More than 550 young scientists from developing countries have attended training courses organised by IPGL and recently the “International Joint Degree Master Programme in Limnology & Wetland Management” has been established, organised by BOKU, UNESCO-IHE, Delft, The Netherlands (http://www.unesco-ihe.org) and Egerton University, Egerton, Kenya (www.egerton.ac.ke) . Another important aim of IPGL is to initiate and facilitate joint research projects between southern & northern institutions with special emphasis on the Eastern African region.
