Over a year ago, Dr. Roula Bachour joined FAFS Dean's Office to manage the Transforming Higher Education project of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation in collaboration with GCHERA, EARTH University, and four pilot institutions in Haiti and Mexico. Through several workshops, meetings, and training opportunities, the project assisted the pilot institutions in developing and adapting transformative agendas and action plans. These institutions enjoyed very positive early benefits as they made great initial strides toward changing their educational models.
Based on her expertise in agriculture and irrigation, Dr. Bachour advises the team working on an FAO project for a WEF Nexus case study for the Bekaa valley to create a platform for WEF trade-off analysis that can be scaled to suit Lebanon and region as a whole.
