    As part of the 30th anniversary celebration  of the United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), the Institute is organising a conference for its College of Research Associates. The College of Research Associates Conference will be held under the theme “New Frontiers in Natural Resources Management in Africa”.

    Date: 28th -29th  November, 2016

    Location: Accra, Ghana

    The conference will be under three key areas. These are:

    • Natural Resources Accounting, Trade and Green Economy;
    • Governance, Policies and Institutions for Natural Resources Management; and
    • Science, Technology and Innovation.

    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.

    NB: Participation in the conference is strictly by invitation.
