Build Science in Africa

Africa’s population is projected to nearly quadruple over the next century. And that is following a staggering increase over just seven decades — from 200 million people in 1950 to 1.25 billion in 2018. Meanwhile, temperatures across the continent are expected to rise by between 3 °C and 4 °C over the next century, bringing more drought, flooding, conflict and species loss3.

To face these formidable challenges, Africa must improve its capabilities in higher education and research. Yet the quality of the scientific education provided at many universities on the continent has, if anything, deteriorated over the past two decades.

Therefore, Anagaw Atickem, Nils Chr. Stenseth and colleagues put forth a compelling case for  more home-grown researchers in the continent.
