RUFORUM has published two books, thus far: The Green Book and GEAR (Graduate Environmental and Agricultural Research). The Green Book is intended to equip young African scholars with guidance for their thesis study and prepare them for the leadership roles that will be expected of them on completion of their studies. The book is written as a guide, with examples from the Continent are to highlight issues of relevance to the subject. GEAR, which is an extension of the Green Book, is also meant for young African scholars, and is a reference guide to graduate research and thesis production. As more books are published, they will be added to this collection.
