The 10th Annual Meeting of African Science Academies was hosted by the Uganda National Academy of Sciences in Kampala, Uganda. The meeting agenda that focused on country ownership of Africa’s development in the post-2015 era was discussed by nineteen African Science Academies.
NASAC has been committed to enhancing capacity of existing science academies and encouraging the creation of new academies in countries where none exist in Africa. NASAC is hence proud to announce the creation of 2 additional national academies increasing the NASAC membership to 21.
The NASAC science-policy document entitled: The Grand Challenge of Water in Africa – Recommendations to Policymakers was launched on 15 October, 2014 in a grand event at the Second Ministerial Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) in Africa Hosted by the Government of Morocco, and organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB).
