16 Case study 1. Collaboration program Relevance Relevance The war in Angola lasted about 30 years and has destroyed almost all infrastructures. Agricultural production was inexistent and the country relayed entirely in food importation. Education was frequently interrupted by civil war and qualified human resources fled the country. Year 2004 was only two years away from the concretization of internal peace process and the country needed assistance to boost its agricultural production and education. University involvement in collaboration is one of the best ways of cooperation in development as the University’s aim is to educate human being, i.e. the society.

20 Case study 2. Integration program Relevance Relevance The war in Angola lasted about 30 years and has destroyed almost all infrastructures. Many sectors of development were collapsed and education was not preserved and was frequently interrupted. After the peace process in 2002, the government has to define new policies for the development of the country. Actually, it was in one hand about choosing priority among priorities. It was mostly a matter of internal organization rather than external. In other hand, African countries were unstable in many essential areas of development; thus when launched, the project faced many barriers to overcome.
