The Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) hosted a half-day outreach programme in research, funding and networking on Wednesday 4th July. The aim of this meeting was to get researchers of various backgrounds in Seychelles to learn about and discuss potential ways to serve the region through more coordinated and rigorous research, with the promotion of intellectual dialogue among the participating member states. The meeting was facilitated by the IORA representative from South Africa, Selby Modiba, who is leading the three-member delegation at the meeting. As chair of IORA, South Africa is launching the series of regional outreach programmes targeting academics and IORA representatives of those regions. (Courtesy Seychelles Nation)
