Research on Food and Agriculture
In 2016 the AU-EU High Level Policy Dialogue on science, technology and innovation (HLPD) adopted the roadmap for the EU-Africa Research and Innovation Partnership on Food and Nutrition Security & Sustainable Agriculture (FNSSA). A number of projects will support the implementation of the roadmap, for example those responding to the calls for proposals published by the European Commission:
• LC-SFS-34-2019: Food Systems Africa
• SFS-35-2019-2020: Sustainable Intensification in Africa
Projects funded by LEAP-Agri will build another cluster of bi-regional research partnerships on FNSSA resulting from the partnership between African Union and European Union. The LEAP-Agri partnership is an ERA-NET co-fund financed by institutes and ministries from African and European countries with additional finances from the European Commission.
Go Africa aims at supporting the implementation of the roadmap on Research and Innovation Partnership on FNSSA and contributing our expertise to the establishment of a bi-reginal platform.
