Building Research Capacity for sustainable water and food security in sub-saharan Africa


BRECcIA project is now completed. Please contact or contact us via our LinkedIn for any information on future collaborations.

BRECcIA was a four year UKRI Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) program which aimed to develop research capacity across institutions that is self-sustaining and focused on improving food and water security for the poorest of society.

Our vision was to strengthen research capacity and capabilities in institutions in Malawi, Kenya and Ghana to carry out impactful research that leads to positive policy and practice change for sustainable water and food security, which will have benefits for the 270 million people living in the Sub Saharan Africa drylands.
