Abstract

The Eastern Africa Land Administration Network (EALAN) has since 2006 been collaborating with the viewto support the development of education, short courses for land professionals and research. The network,currently constitutes 13 member institutions in the eastern Africa region. The purpose of this study is topresent the establishment, activities and the results of the Consortium on Strengthening the Eastern AfricaLand Administration Network (SEALAN), a project funded by the Netherlands Initiative for Capacitydevelopment in Higher Education. The four year project concluded in January 2020. This study draws on theresults from the projects’ four work packages (WP) i.e. i) the Network and Secretariat WP ii) Short coursesWP; iii) Education WP and iv) Research WP. The study reports on processes, achievements, innovations,challenges/limitations and opportunities or spin offs along each work package. This study suggests that suchinter-university networks could play a major role in collaboratively developing, revising and updatingcurricula whilst promoting innovations in education, collaborative teaching and learning through staff andstudent exchange, and collaborative research writing and community outreach. The SEALAN project andConsortium is the first strategic network of its kind established by the EALAN network. The findings of thisstudy are useful to the administrators of educational institutions and partners as they improve inter-universitycollaboration and scaling up of content in curricula and research. For example, EALAN Network’s successhas caught the attention of international partners who are replicating similar networks across the Africancontinent.
