School of Agriculture and Natural Resources

Welcome Message

To our stakeholders, students, alumni, community partners, parents and friends, I wish you a warm welcome to the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources (SANR), CUIB-Douala Campus.

Today, due to the progress of Science and Technology, food productivity soared high. Along with this advancement, however, are negative aspects like the use of chemicals in abundance for fast growth and production of crops and animals for more generation of incomes; the over-use of chemical additives in foods; pollution and environmental destruction. As results, these damaging features of food production have greatly contributed to the reduction of the quality of the food produced; to the increase of degenerative diseases and mortality rate and finally to global warming. Now that we are challenged with revising the relationship between humans and nature, we have to seek for solutions, by improving on our lifestyle. We believe that, Sustainable Agriculture and especially the practice and adoption of “Organic Agriculture” is the key solution to these challenges. Our goal is to totally move toward the sustainable production of foods for healthy people and environment. To solve the problem of food production versus the preservation of the environment, the school promotes research to a great extent, and offers unique educational programs under the umbrella of the two key words that symbolize our ideals: “Sustainable and Organic Agriculture”.
