In the official FY 2022/23 Annual Review (AR), the FCDO funded Africa Technology & Innovation Partnerships (ATIP) programme has been awarded an A+ after in-depth interviews and evidence-based evaluation.

The AR unequivocally highlighted the contribution and the effectiveness of the Global Alliance Africa project in enabling stronger innovation ecosystem in and bilateral partnerships with Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa for long-term mutual benefits.

The accelerated pace of our interventions under stringent financial and resource constraints in the first post-Covid year has helped ATIP to exceed FCDO’s output expectations. The year’s highlights include the ongoing 17 Open Innovation collaborations in Net Zero, Digital and Agrifood sectors, the #MoreThanAWoman campaign in South Africa, and many more.

We are honoured to receive this recognition from the FCDO,” said Nee-Joo Teh, Head of Global Alliance. “Our team across four countries has worked extremely hard to create meaningful partnerships for the UK to make a positive impact in Africa. The AR outcome is a testament to the efforts by every Global Alliance Africa team member and to the commitment of Innovate UK KTN in supporting the role of the UK innovation in international development.
