Models for sustainable community development were introduced into the courses offered by OWU with 6 specific thematic units and materials. The teaching materials were improved and adapted to local contexts. The teaching capacity of OWU was improved with the training of teachers in new technologies for sustainable renewable energy resources and small-scale conservation farming. The university has also increased its capacity to design and carry out research activities. The physical and virtual Knowledge Resource Centre was established and a sound co-operation formed among the HEIs in Mozambique, Portugal and South Africa.
