Four core partners with complementary skills will lead and coordinate the activities:
- ENDA-Tiers Monde, an international NGO based in Senegal
- Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA), a pan-African agricultural research organization with its secretariat in Ghana
- IGAD Climate Predictions and Applications Centre (ICPAC), a leading climate science organization based in Kenya
- Institute of Development Studies (IDS), a UK-based research and training institution with extensive experience facilitating knowledge exchange on international development issues
A network facilitated by African research organizations, linking among and beyond CCAA participatory action research projects, will provide a starting point for a continent-wide model of knowledge sharing.
The project is due to start in April 2008. For more information, please contact the Programme Manager, Dr. Tom Mitchell
