#SmallNationBigIdeas: Africa-Wales Research Collaborations Tackling Climate Change

On November the 6th 2022, world leaders will meet in Egypt for the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP27. In celebration, we have compiled a set of case studies highlighting Wales – Africa climate focussed research collaborations.

Collaboration is one of the four pillars of the vision and mission for COP27. And it’s one of the areas in which Welsh universities excel. An assessment of Welsh research published in 2021 found that more than 50% of Wales’s research output was through an international research collaboration.
