Season 4, Episode 15

Strengthening research and innovation in Africa can catalyse progress on development issues such as food insecurity, the climate crisis, and poor health systems.

In this episode of Africa Science Focus Podcast, our reporter Michael Kaloki speaks with chair holders of the OR Tambo Africa Research Chairs Initiative (ORTARChI) about how technology transfer and collaboration can lead to tangible changes on the ground.

We also hear about the food systems research being carried out in Africa and why local cultural norms are an essential consideration.


ORTARChI aims to build the capacities of researchers, fund their work and bring them together to find solutions to the lingering challenges facing the continent.


This podcast was supported by the Science Granting Councils Initiative which aims to strengthen the institutional capacities of 18 public science funding agencies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
