There is a real challenge of access to scientific information in Africa that is further compounded by language barriers and literacy levels. AfriCenter has responded to this challenge by developing and disseminating various information, education and communication (IEC) materials to serve the information needs of different stakeholders. This involves packing scientific information into simplified easy to use knowledge products that are reflective of and responsive to local cultures and conditions.
The Center has developed and disseminated a number of IEC materials to various audiences, as well as repacked ISAAA’s global status report into a variety of simplified formats including infographics, and videos. Soft copies of these products can be found in the resources section.
