    日時: 2019年9月2日(月)午後2時30分~午後5時(午後2時受付開始)

    日時: 2019年9月3日(火)午後2時30分~午後5時(午後2時受付開始)

  • サブサハラ・アフリカ地域は、高等教育や研究成果で遅れをとっています。これは、大学での教育の質の悪さや大学進学ができるような優秀な中高生の人材供給不足に関連しています。高等教育と研究成果、特に科学、技術、農業、保健などの関連分野を強化することは、より高い開発への影響をもたらします。科学・技術系の人材不足は、企業や労働者による新技術の吸収、普及、適応を制限し、気候変動のような開発課題への取り組みをさらに困難にさせます。

    SDGsにも関連するこれらの開発課題に取り組むために、世界銀行ではアフリカ地域の高等教育支援プログラムのAfrica Center of Excellence(ACE)、およびPASET: Partnership for skills in Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technologyという重要なイニシアティブを推進しています。ACEプロジェクトは、選別された20か国のアフリカの大学の72センターに投資し、研究・教育能力向上、アフリカ地域や海外の大学間、および産業界とのパートナーシップ作り、そして質の高い修士・博士課程のプログラム作りを支援しています。PASETは、世界銀行が事務局となりアフリカの政府が立ち上げ、企業や他ドナーと共に高等教育や職業技術教育において科学技術スキルを向上させる人材育成を目的としたプログラムです。パートナーシップ構築においてはアジアやラテンアメリカを事例に学び、関係構築をしてきたということが特徴的です。フラッグシップイニシアティブは、汎アフリカ科学基金であるRegional Scholarship and Innovation Fund (RSIF)で、PhD奨学金、研究費やイノベーション費(研究実装費)を提供しています。RSIFは、サブサハラ・アフリカ地域で選別された各10ホスト大学での博士課程、応用科学、技術や工学の分野のキャパシティ向上を目的としています。

    ACEとPASETは、アフリカ地域プラットフォームとして、外国の大学や企業とパートナーシップを築きながら、教育・研究やイノベーションの質向上を目指しています。本セッションでは、アフリカの国々が抱える課題や大学パートナーシップや研究実装がいかに高等教育や研究の質向上に貢献したかについて議論しました。
