Please forward the correct link, as well as the e-mail addresses of the person(s) responsible for the programme, as I wish to access the papers/presentations for a UWC/UP/UKZN Lekgotla planned for the first week in May under the auspices of the DST-NRF Centre of Excellence in Food Security where will, amongst others, be dealing with exactly the same challenges given the transdisciplinary nature of the CoE.
