BlueCycling and PrAEctiCe projects have recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on communication and dissemination activities that promote the development of sustainable agroecological practices in East Africa. 

The shared objectives of both projects include a focus on circular water, energy, and nutrient systems that can enhance the financial viability of smallholder farms. The aim of their collaboration is to advocate best practices and increase the adoption of sustainable farming methods in the region.

During a recent visit to Uganda and Kenya, Alyssa Joyce strengthened the relationship between the two projects and facilitated the signing of an MOU between them. Dr. Erick Ogello, along with his graduate student Nicholas Outa from Maseno University, is working with Alyssa on both BlueCycling and PrAEctiCe projects. They have established an aquaponics system as a part of the BlueCycling project for training and research purposes. Meanwhile, a larger facility is currently being built in the PrAEctiCe project.
