The UNU-INRA College of Research Associates (CRA) is a continent-wide network of senior African research scientists who assist the Institute to address the critical challenges facing natural resources management in Africa. The members, who are based at various universities and research institutions, complement UNU-INRA’s work by undertaking training and research on natural resources management issues in Africa.
The conference will also have participants from relevant Government agencies, universities, research institutions, and civil society organisations, to deliberate on a diversity of topics on natural resources management in Africa to inform sustainable development. The two-day deliberations aim at mapping new frontiers in the management of natural resources in the African continent.
