Welcome

The ICSU Regional Office for Africa welcomes you to the new, integrated website. It is indeed a giant leap, but also liberating in a sense that (i) it reflects ICSU with decentralisation to regions to ensure more appropriate application of science closer to societal level (ii) it puts the ownership of and responsibility for content in the hands of the generators of that content. The website is currently a work in progress, but please watch this space as it develops into a comprehensive informative tool for the ICSU family and its stakeholders.
