The objective of CEADESE is to strengthen human and material capacity for agricultural
development. The Centre is focused on teaching, learning and research excellent in
agricultural productivity in the face of climate change challenges. The proposed action
plans to achieve these objectives are divided into two broad activities: capacity building
and research activities in collaboration with industry and other stakeholders in
Agriculture. The capacity building programme involves introducing new post-graduate
curricula leading to Master & Doctoral Degrees in Agricultural Development and
Sustainable Environment – (M.AgSE/PhD.AgSE) in response to specic productivity
challenges, short-term skill acquisition for industry stakeholders, specialized workshops
and to introduce internships during post-graduate studies. The action plan for research
programme consists of partnering with regional and international centres to conduct postgraduate
students’ research that are demand-driven and will lead to regional
development. This is intended to forge closer relation with industry and stakeholders in
Agriculture in order to respond to their developmental needs through demand-driven
research projects. In addition, the Centre is embarking on thematic agricultural research
projects of international interests targeted at mitigating climate and environmental
challenges in the sub-region.

The Centre of Excellence in Agricultural Development and Sustainable Environment (CEADESE) is a proposed Centre of Excellence in agriculture anchored at the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Nigeria. The Centre is to focus on teaching, learning and research excellence in agricultural productivity under sustainable environment
ACE-CEADESE aims to meet the challenges of producing new generation of young scientists, cutting-edge research outcomes leading to agricultural productivity through the development of innovative and resourceful products, crop varieties, animal breeds/ strains and safe nutritious feeds/ foods.
Our goal is to be a leading learning and research centre in facilitating sustainable agricultural development for enhanced livelihoods; strengthening the weak link and cooperation between agro based industries and farms on one hand and the research institutions on the other hand to produce required synergy needed for sustainable development.
