Introduction:

CTA is a member of the consortium for the EU 7th Framework Programme project 'Advancing Sub-Saharan Africa-European Union Cooperation in Research and Innovation for Global Challenges' or CAAST-Net Plus. This project serves the Africa-Europe partnership in science, technology and innovation, as framed by the Joint Africa-EU Strategy to encourage more and better bi-regional ST&I cooperation for enhanced outcomes around topics of mutual interest, particularly in relation to the global societal challenges – climate change, food security and health. Last year, the online survey for analysing the impact of joint Africa-EU ST&I cooperation on food and nutrition security was shared with the K4D community. The summaries of the major findings and recommendations of the FNS impact analysis as well as those on climate change and health are now available on the project website (PDF) and formed part of the Entebbe deliberations, on 24-25 November 2014. The full reports when approved will also be shared with you.
