AfricaArray is an innovative programme to promote, strengthen and maintain a workforce of highly trained African geoscientists and researchers for Africa. Well-trained geoscience professionals are key to sustainable development as demand grows for Africa’s natural resources and as Africa’s environment is impacted by global change.

A 20-year initiative, AfricaArray refers to scientists working on arrays of continent-wide linked projects; arrays of shared training programmes and observational networks; and above all, a common vision that Africa will build and retain capacity in an array of technical and scientific fields.

AfricaArray also is committed to enhancing the diversity of the geosciences workforce in Africa and the U.S.

Details on the research, partnerships, academic programs and science capacity building initiatives can be found on the AfricaArray website.
