GCRF-Agricultural and Food System Resilience: Increasing Capacity and Advising Policy (AFRICAP) is a £9.2 million programme to make agriculture and food production in sub-Saharan Africa more productive, sustainable and resilient to climate change.
Working with local organisations and governments in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia, we are creating an evidence base to underpin new country-specific policies in agriculture and food production.
AFRICAP and African SWIFT programme managers Dr Helen Coskeran and Dr Lorraine Youds team up to write about their drive for an international network of research and programme management professionals, offering 12 templates for sustainable research management.
Ensuring people have the right amounts and the right kinds of food to support healthy lifestyles is a growing challenge across Africa. Richard King explores the role of trade in achieving nutrition security in Africa’s future food systems through iFEED results in Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.
