FSNet-Africa aims to design and implement food systems research in partnership with stakeholders to identify solutions that can bring about sustainable change in African food systems.
Early-career research fellows (no more than 10 years post-PhD) will be given the opportunity to participate in 2-year structured research fellowships. The fellowships enable research fellows to conduct context-relevant, interdisciplinary, systems analysis research to identify food systems solutions for Africa. Research is designed and implemented in partnership with relevant food systems stakeholders. The fellowships will also allow fellows to build lasting research networks and develop their skills to translate their research impactfully.
Aims and Objectives
We aim to strengthen researchers' capacities to conduct food systems research and translate evidence into implementable policy solutions and practical interventions to support the SDG targets for Africa.
