Southern African Resilience Academy
The Southern African Resilience Academy (SARA), based at the Centre for Sustainability Transitions (CST) at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.
SARA’s role is to act as a convening and support space for inter- and transdisciplinary researchers and practitioners working across southern Africa to engage around pressing resilience and development challenges in the region. The academy’s goals are to strengthen existing expert networks, expand collaboration, and facilitate the co-production of policy and practice-relevant knowledge. Furthermore, through its links with the GRP and other Resilience Academies, SARA aims to contribute directly and meaningfully to regional and global policy discussions around resilience and development, and elevate the southern African voice in international fora.
