WEEKLY READINGS


Week 14 Aug 2019

In order to achieve sustainable development outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), African institutions must be the leading experts on and primary providers of research solutions to local problems. We present for consideration three possible innovative models that can facilitate the emergence of strong Africa-based, Africa-led institutions: a multi-stakeholder funding platform, an integrator organization model, and a scale model.

Week 8 Aug 2019

Africa is more relevant than ever in a constantly evolving global context driven by continuous reconfiguration of geostrategic balances and constant reshuffling of power dynamics. Since the turn of the millennium, Africa has embarked on a process of facing up to its own challenges and taking control of its economic, political and strategic destiny.
