At the invitation of Dr Jemal Yousuf, Acting President, Professor John Morton and Dr Tim Chancellor visited Haramaya University from 28–30 August to discuss research collaboration under NRI’s Food and Nutrition Security Initiative (FaNSI). Haramaya hosts the African Center of Excellence for Climate Smart Agriculture and Biodiversity Conservation which has strong potential synergies with NRI’s programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Natural Resources led by Professor Morton.
NRI has a long history of working in partnership with collaborators across the world, as we undertake research that makes a difference. In the past five years, NRI staff have worked in over 40 developing countries with more than 250 partners. Through NRI’s recently launched Food and Security Initiative (FaNSI) we are building on existing collaborations with partners in Africa and establishing new ones.
