Three global challenges grants target African water issues

The research councils of the United Kingdom have announced three multi-million-pound projects that will conduct research into water-related areas in Africa.

Justin Sheffield from the University of Southampton will lead a project to build research capacity in sustainable water use and food security in sub-Saharan Africa. The project will focus on dryland regions and involve partners from Ghana, Kenya and Malawi. The Southern African Development Community’s water resource management body, WaterNet/SADC, will also be involved.

“[Rainwater is] a fragile and precious resource, we want to collaborate with institutes in the region to help ensure its future supply,” said Sheffield in a statement.
