Welcome to the Africa Regional International Staff/Student Exchange: Food Security and Sustainable Human Wellbeing ARISE and ARISE II projects

The Africa Regional International Staff/Student Exchange: Food Security and Sustainable Human Wellbeing ‘ARISE’ programme was launched in 2012 under the Mwalimu Nyerere / Intra African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Academic mobility scheme. The Intra ACP academic mobility scheme supports higher education cooperation between countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific. The scheme aims to promote sustainable development and poverty alleviation by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in the ACP countries.

The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) is responsible for the managing this programme, with the support of the African Union (AU) and the Africa Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP), and under the supervision of the Directorate-General for Development and Cooperation-EuropeAid.

The project is coordinated by the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and its partner are : The University of Ghana, Addis Ababa University (Ethiopia), Makerere University (Uganda), The University of Nairobi (Kenya) and the University of Rwanda. The University of Leuven serves as technical partner and the International Education Association of South Africa serves as associate partner.

The Africa Regional International Staff/Student Exchange: Food Security and Sustainable Human Wellbeing ‘ARISE II’ programme was launched in 2016 under the Intra Africa Academic Mobility Scheme which builds on the success of the Intra ACP Academic Mobility Scheme.
The objective of the Intra Africa Academic Mobility Scheme is to improve the skills and competences of students and staff through enhanced mobility between African countries.
