From the Entebbe Forum 

CAAST-Net Plus is pleased to present Findings and Recommendations for Decision-makers from its first stakeholder forum, which was held in Entebbe, Uganda, last November.

The forum convened 60 experts to discuss Africa-EU strategies for using science, technology and innovation (STI) to tackle global challenges of health, food and nutrition security, and climate change. “Our consortium works to reinforce the Africa-EU relationship in STI at the formal and informal levels, and we do this through several channels,” says project coordinator, Dr Andrew Cherry.
“CAAST-Net Plus stakeholder forums, in particular, are an excellent mechanism for developing a two-way exchange of knowledge and information between these formal and informal relationships. 

"We encourage readers from bi-regional, sub-regional and national contexts to actively engage with the ideas presented in this report and to seek pathways to integrate them within their ongoing activities, as well as in their institutions,” Cherry says.
