About the Department of International Environment and Development Studies, Noragric

Webmaster

Since its establishment in 1986 as a centre at the former Norwegian Agricultural University, Noragric has played an important role in developing institutional collaboration agreements with the university's many partners in Africa, Asia and South East Europe. This collaboration not only offers UMB students the opportunity to take part of their studies abroad, but also for UMB to welcome students and researchers to Ås.

On 1 February 2005, Noragric became the Department of International Environment and Development Studies at the renamed Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB). Noragric staff and students are engaged in interdisciplinary studies on a wide range of issues concerned with poverty, livelihoods, gender, property rights, environmental management, conflict, peace building and post-conflict development in Sub-Saharan Africa, South- and Southeast Asia and South America.
