    The Kenya National Academy of Sciences (KNAS) in partnership with the World Academy of Sciences Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Partner (TWAS-SAREP) will be hosting the Annual Regional Young Scientists’ Conference from 23-25 October 2019 in Nairobi, Kenya. The theme for the conference is Water-Food-Climate/Energy Nexus and Policy in Africa. KNAS and its partners invites emerging/young scientists from sub-Saharan Africa to apply to participate in this multilateral conference. The conference is envisaged to bring about experts/senior scientists as key speakers, policy makers and young scientists to deliberate on topical issues affecting Africa.

    Background

    The theme of this year’s conference is
    aligned with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: Water and sanitation,
    while the sub-themes are aligned to Science, Technology and Innovation
    Strategy for Africa (STISA 2024), an African Union policy and strategy
    document for leveraging science, technology and innovation to accomplish
    development goals. Its mission is to “accelerate Africa’s transition to
    an innovation led, knowledge-based economy”.

    The conference will seek to address
    critical issues pertinent to Africa’s development challenges as
    identified in STISA 2024 through rigorous scientific debate and
    interrogation of policy dimensions in the four sub-themes, namely: Food Security in Africa; Climate Change and environmental protection; Water resources exploitation and management; and Energy and Sustainable Development in Africa. The
    young scientists will also get to be trained on science diplomacy and
    sustainable development goals with the objective of exposing to the real
    world of the complex interaction between the scientists, the policy
    makers and the implementers.
