What is Africa College?
Africa College is an international research partnership working to improve the lives of the millions of people in sub-Saharan Africa by the sustainable enhancement of their food and nutritional security. Lead partners include the University of Leeds, IITA and ICIPE.
Faculties of Biological Sciences, Environment and Medicine and Health, are the main University of Leeds partners. Further members come from four other faculties working on research in Africa. www.leeds.ac.uk
The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) enhances food security and improves livelihoods in Africa. Its programme addresses major development problems in Africa rather than simply contributing to scientific knowledge. www.iita.org
The International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE) works to help alleviate poverty, ensure food security and improve the health of peoples of the tropics by developing tools and strategies for harmful and useful insects. www.icipe.org/
