Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa is home to the most densely populated countries on the African continent, countries with the world’s youngest population, rich in natural and human resources, full of motivation, strong potential and enormous innovative strength.

Germany has a long tradition of education and research cooperation with countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) laid the foundation for this in the late 1970s. Today, it supports projects with partners from over 39 African countries.
