Millennial Global Transformation: From the Physical to the Anthropocene, Essays in honour of Prof Celia Nyamweru

The specific objectives of the proposed Building REsearch Capacity for sustainable water and food security In sub-saharan Africa (BRECcIA) project are:

  • To enable partner institutions to understand the barriers and enablers to high quality scientific research, and to co-develop a pipeline of capacity-building activities to strengthen research technical and management skills, professional skills, and professional development.
  • To develop research networks across African institutions around water and food security, and to leverage these to co-design pertinent research questions on key global challenges.
  • To engage in collaborative research programmes that advance knowledge of food and water security in partner countries, identifies solutions to water and food security challenges, and produce a new cohort of trained researchers in this field that are capable of leading and shaping the direction of future research.
  • To ensure impactful research that influences policy/practice through engagement with regional climate, hydrological and agricultural information providers, and with stakeholders and policy makers at national and local levels to empower local communities.
  • To facilitate sustained research capacity within partner institutions after the end of the project and to provide opportunities to self-propagate capacity to a broader set of institutions and researchers across Africa.
