Research initiative to tackle food security, global warming

In an effort to bolster cooperation between European and African countries as they face joint challenges in agriculture, food and the environment in a context of climate change, two French science bodies, in cooperation with 20 African universities and institutes along with three sub-regional organisations, have launched a research initiative to improve food security, fight global warming and tackle youth employment, among others.

Professor Adipala Ekwamu, the executive secretary of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), based in Uganda, told University World News: “This initiative is important because it is recognition that Africa has a place in the generation of knowledge for Africa and the rest of the world; an opportunity for Africa to play an active role in the global knowledge economy; and an opportunity for integrating and reducing the knowledge and skills gaps between Europe and Africa.” read full article the download below…
