We previously reported on our involvement in a project that will see a cadre of ‘change champions’ trained to improve plant biosecurity in east and southern African countries (read story here).
The Australia-Africa Plant Biosecurity Partnership is led by Australia’s Plant Biosecurity CRC and funded by the AIFSRC within ACIAR, CABI and the Australia Awards scholarship program. The program is being delivered by a consortium of PBCRC, ACIAR, CABI, CSIRO and the Crawford Fund.
The project is now calling for Senior Biosecurity Fellows. Interested individuals from National Plant Protection Organisations and other public sector agencies from Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe are encouraged to apply by 10 July 2015.
Senior Biosecurity Fellows will be supported to take part in the following activities:
