Erika Kraemer-Mbula attended the 4th PASET Forum on “Partnerships and innovation for skills development in Africa” jointly hosted by the World Bank and the Government of Kenya in Nairobi, Kenya. The Partnership for Skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology (PASET) was launched in 2013 in recognition of this critical need to strengthen science, and technology capability for the socio-economic development of sub-Saharan Africa. The Partnership functions as a convening platform by bringing together African governments and the private sector as well as new partners who have been investing heavily in Africa, including Brazil, China, India, and Korea to work together to harmonize efforts aimed at building human capital in SSA. Erika is a member of the PASET’s Consultative Advisory Group and she facilitated a session on Innovation in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology Skills Development.
