To boost food security

Research centre launched to boost food security

The Department of Science and Technology and the National Research Foundation launched the Centre of Excellence in Food Security at the University of the Western Cape (UWC). The centre, which will be co-hosted by UWC and the University of Pretoria, will conduct research on food creation, distribution, consumption and governance.

This is an exciting development and we hope to be able to implement some of the learnings of this food security power house in the field of JAM SA’s Agricultural Development programme.

Food security research gets a focus and a home*
