The Impact of and Adaptation to Climate Change in Relation to Food Security in Africa

Most science academies (and members of NASAC) in Africa are underresourced and have limited institutional capacity, while their potential role in society is significant, in particular when it comes to offering independent and evidence-based advice to government and promoting science and science education. The public and even scholars are often unfamiliar with the role and potential of academies. By organizing international conferences and conducting stakeholder forums and focused in-country workshops, academies in Africa can become more visible. Regional and international networking also provides new opportunities to science academies. See Attachment for more details.

Our Mandate

The Network of African Science Academies aspires to act as an independent African forum that brings together Academies of Sciences in Africa to discuss scientific aspects of challenges of common concern, to make common statements on major issues relevant to Africa and to provide mutual support to member Academies. Drawing from this, NASAC aims to specifically facilitate the provision of advice to governments and regional organizations on scientific aspects of pertinent issues to Africa 's development through science academies.
