On 01 November 2023 in Yaoundé, Cameroon in the margins of the 19th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM), the GRA-RUFORUM Alumni Network in Africa was launched by a group of Alumni (participants from the first round of the GRA-GRG).  The Network, named GRAN-Afrique will promote networking among the Alumni, promote the development of their professional careers, build their involvement and commitment in GRA and RUFORUM activities and facilitate cooperate on agricultural GHG research and development, including through community projects.

Dr Kingsley Etchu (GRA National Focal Point, Cameroon), who attended the event to celebrate and support the Network’s launch, commended the representatives of the Alumni for establishing the Network. He stressed the need for the Network to be an inclusive platform for interaction, information exchange and exploiting opportunities to make significant business and social impact.

The newly launched GRAN Afrique provides yet another avenue for strengthening research collaboration on climate change and agriculture within Africa, and to highlight the ongoing work that GRA member states are undertaking to build the capability of African scientists. The GRA will remain supportive of the Network including through professional development opportunities such as thematic workshops, short-term training, and small grants to support network activities.
