In 2016, the International Council for Science (ICSU) signed a 5-year agreement with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) for a 5 million euro programme. This programme will catalyse the generation and use of new intergrated policy-relevant scientific knowledge in Africa needed to address the complexsustainabilty challenges in the region.
The programme, which ends in December 2020, will be implemented by ICSU in conjunction with its Regional Office for Africa (ICSU ROA) based in Pretoria, South Africa, the Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) based in Nairobi, Kenya and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) based in Paris, France.
By providing support for integrated research projects on global sustainability across Africa, the programme seeks to develop the potential of next-generation scientists in Africa in production and communication of policy-relevant knowledge.
