Welcome to the quarterly FCFA Internal Update. In this update:

We would like to extend our thanks to everyone who participated in the FCFA Mid-term conference. 103 participants joined in Cape Town for stimulating and thought-provoking exchanges. Please take a look at the great photo narrative of the event, compiled by Gregor Röhrig (you’ll be sure to find a picture of yourself). We would also appreciate if you can take 5 minutes to complete the feedback form to help us learn and improve the next conference.
All presentations and posters have been uploaded to the password protected conference page. You can access the resources with the (case sensitive) password “CapeTown2017”.
The conference report is currently being compiled and we ask all parallel sessions leads, capstone output champions, and breakout group rapporteurs to submit outstanding notes. We are aiming to share the final conference report by mid-October.
We have also posted an updated spreadsheet with the contact details of all FCFA-affiliated researchers and practitioners on the Internal Resources page. We ask support from consortia coordinators to ensure that all the information for the respective consortia is complete and up to date.
