This year’s theme is “Improving access to energy in Sub-Saharan Africa."
The African Science Academy Development Initiative (ASADI), launched in 2004 by the U.S. National Academies and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, is a 10-year effort to strengthen the capability of African science academies to provide independent, evidence-supported advice to inform African government policy making and public discourse related to improving human health. The initiative also aims to foster a deeper appreciation on the part of African governments for the benefits of decision making based on evidence and analysis with a view toward building the demand for academy-led efforts.
