Africa (collection)

Welcome to the Africa Collection!

This new collection is centered on the environmental, economic and social challenges faced by the people of Africa. The goal of this collection is to draw attention to the magnitude and complexity of the challenges faced by the African continent in general and each of the countries in particular.

The impact of these challenges goes beyond Africa which has one the world’s widest environmental, economic, and social disparities between the countries.

The contributors to the African Collection are leading scientists and organizations both from within and outside Africa.

This collection is a work in progress and you are encouraged to visit this site on a regular basis to learn more about what is being done in each of the African countries. To help you learn about the challenges faced by each of the countries we have designed an interactive map – on the right hand side of this page – including basic information on every country in Africa and EoE articles published that relate to that particular country.

You can learn more about general African issues, the authors and content partners, and check answers to some frequently asked questions about Africa by visiting the pages below. You are also invited to contribute your expertise to the Encyclopedia of Earth's Africa collection or be a part of this collaborative effort by contacting Lakhdar Boukerrou or Arielle Conti.
