The Center for Development Research (ZEF) is an institute of the University of Bonn, Germany. It started its research activities in 1997. ZEF’s researchers aim to find science-based solutions to development-related issues. ZEF’s research departments on Economic and Technological Change, Political and Cultural Change, and Ecology and Natural Resources Management conduct inter- and trans-disciplinary research in, for and with emerging economies and on global issues with its collaborating research partners around the world. ZEF educates doctoral students from all over the world in its Doctoral Studies Program. ZEF is guided by an International Advisory Board.
The mission of the African Centre of Excellence on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Agriculture (CEA-CCBAD) is to provide training and research on issues related to ecosystems, biodiversity, food production (plant, animal and fisheries), water, and productive and sustainable forestry in the context of climate change affecting the region.
This includes graduate training, knowledge production and valorisation in relation to: (i) protection of water resources, control of soil erosion, protection and better use of biodiversity, adoption of resistance crop projects, protection of forest production through, for example, bio-indicators such as pollinators, earthworms and coprophagous insects. The centre trains graduates in interdisciplinary subjects so that they are able to work with all stakeholders in the sector and secure jobs for other learners.
The African Centre of Excellence on Climate Change, Biodiversity and Sustainable Agriculture at the Université Félix Houphouët-Boigny (UFHB) is mainly aimed at training master’s and postgraduate students. It focuses on biodiversity, and is part of a pre-existing regional network of 10 institutions focusing on climate change (WASCAL).
The Institute for Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA) at the University of Nairobi consists of a diversified team of experts and researchers drawn from across the University. Established in 2011, ICCA is dedicated to building the human capacity necessary to address the unique climate change adaptation needs of vulnerable communities. ICCA works through teaching, action-oriented research, the development of innovative technologies and community participation. It provides expert advice for national and regional policy formulation and implementation. ICCA leads the effort to adapt to climate change impacts through teaching, research, innovation and community participation. ICCA offers of formal training on climate change science and adaptation at the postgraduate level (Master’s and Doctorate). It also offers short professional courses for various climate change stakeholders in the public and private sectors, including NGOs. ICCA serves these professionals through the undertaking of climate change and adaptation research and knowledge exchange; the development and implementation of action-oriented community outreach programmes; and the generation and dissemination of policy advice on climate change and adaptation.
The Global South Studies Center Cologne (GSSC) was founded in 2014 as part of the excellence initiative of the federal and state governments at the University of Cologne. The scientists involved research the social, economic, political and cultural changes in the countries of the Global South – with the aim of making these developments visible and promoting new options for action for current and future global challenges.
