The Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems – Africa (COMPETE) will bring together world-leading scientists, researchers, funders and practitioners from different fields and across the world to create a platform for discussion, knowledge exchange, policy and methodology development. It will use this concentrated expertise to provide strategic and practical guidance and tools on the provision of modern bioenergy for the sustainable and optimal usage of these special ecosystems.
The main objective of COMPETE is to identify pathways for the provision of bioenergy, which will:
1. improve the quality of life for the inhabitants e.g. poverty alleviation, value added activities, alternative means of income generation and providing options to reduce vulnerability whilst, in parallel;
2. aid the preservation of the critical functions of arid and semi-arid regions in Africa as intact ecosystems e.g. maintaining biodiversity and providing ecosystem services, and;
3. enhance the equitable exchange of knowledge between EU and developing countries in this critical area of activity
Following the main aim of the AfriCAN project we would appreciate if you take some minutes to answer this survey. This survey is to analyse the usefulness of online knowledge and information on climate change particularly in African countries.
