FSNet-Africa: Novel research model aims for zero hunger in Africa

Posted on June 07, 2021

The ARUA-UKRI GCRF Food Systems Research Network for Africa (FSNet-Africa), a flagship project under the ARUA Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Food Systems (ARUA-SFS), has developed a novel research model that aims to contribute to the quest for zero hunger in Africa.

FSNet-Africa is a fellowship programme in which 20 early-career researchers from ten academic partner institutions in six African countries (Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia) will conduct multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary research focused on the transformation of African food systems. 

University World News recently published an article on the FSNet-Africa project, stating that

"FSNet-Africa research teams will co-create research evidence and innovations with food systems stakeholders. This means that their research has a much higher chance of being taken up and rolled out.

FANRPAN will assist in ensuring that the research and innovations produced are translated into policy and practice outputs that can reach governments and other interested stakeholders.

This novel model for conducting research has received commendations continentally and globally."
