The INGSA-Africa Regional Chapter brings together policy practitioners and scientists from across the African continent.
In February 2016, INGSA announced the creation of the INGSA-Africa Regional Chapter at its successful workshop in Hermanus, South Africa. The chapter has since been augmented with representation from francophone Africa, following INGSA’s first ever French-language workshop, held in Dakar, Senegal, in March 2017. The success of these workshops, and the subsequent enthusiasm for an African regional chapter, is a testament to the existing capacity for science advice across Africa, and the recognition that there is further work to be done.
