Science for the Africa-EU Partnership: Building knowledge for sustainable development

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


People, planet, prosperity and peace are four priorities shared by Africa and Europe, and areas where opportunities for beneficial cooperation abound. Over
the past three decades, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) has worked with many organisations and institutions across Africa.
This report and its accompanying interactive online service ‘Africa-StoryMaps’ present the key findings from this collaboration, and set out options the decisionmaking, research and education communities may consider.
The report focuses on the African dimension of the partnership. It explores the opportunities and challenges arising from the fact that Africa has over twice the
population of the European Union (EU), is the world’s most youthful continent, has an economy that is growing faster than that of the EU, is almost seven times larger geographically, yet is vulnerable to diverse internal and external stresses.
