  Human Resources

Realising that the key to effective research is a qualified and skilled human resource base, DARTS has developed its human resources from an all expatriate scientific staff in the early 1960s to a scientific cadre of local Malawian staff with PhDs, MScs, and BSc at the present. This was achieved by the implementation of extensive training programmes funded by USAID between 1980 and 1985, the World Bank between 1985 and 1998, ODA (DfID) throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, and several other donors and institutions, including GTZ, the Rockefeller Foundation, FAO, UNDP and the IARCs. The summary below gives details of the staffing at DARTS Headquarters. Information on personnel in the various research and advisory commodities  appears under the respective stations.
