This year ends on a high for the UPGro programme, which the BRAVE project falls under. Since the programme began, the programme executive board has required that reports are produced for the Department of International Development (DFID). Upon review of these reports, the programme is graded.
This year UPGro was awarded a grade A+, which means that the programme is exceeding its expectations and funders are pleased with the results which it has been producing.
This is good news for the programme as it means that it is meeting its expectations and a good grade could encourage funders to invest more in this field of research.
The BRAVE project and its partners are proud to be a part of the UPGro umbrella and has contributed to the UPGro programme by hosting events, training sessions and supporting local research students.
We hope that the research carried out by the UPGro consortium projects continue to ensure that the hidden wealth of Africa’s aquifers benefits all its citizens.
