EU-Africa High Level Policy Advice Dialogue

UKCDS is a Corporate Member of TAA, with purpose of  "Making science work for development" (www.ukcds.org.uk).

It is represented on the Bureau of the EU-Africa High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on science, technology and innovation, which has chosen to focus on food and nutrition security and sustainable agriculture. The EU-Africa HLPD aims to establish long-term future funding and will play a large part in informing the EUís Horizon 2020 funding programme.

UKCDS represents BIS on the HLPD and has written a short report of recent developments and included all of the relevant documents from the HLPD and the 4th EU-Africa Summit. TAA members may want to pay special attention to paragraphs 51-58 in the Summitís Roadmap for 2014-2017, as these are especially relevant to agriculture. All of these resources are collated into one easy-to-use page on the UKCDS website .
